Hi Friends! Today I am sharing a bright and happy rainbow card with you using some new Lawn Fawn products. I am in love with the tropical themed products in the newest release but I wanted to share a slightly different take on the tropics and you can’t go wrong with a rainbow. For this card I used the Magic Iris Tropical Leaves Add-on die to frame the sentiment in the center. This die makes a great frame with or without the interactive Magic Iris. I started by blending distress inks in Abandoned Coral, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron, Salvaged Patina, Peacock Feathers and Wilted Violet onto Bristol Smooth Cardstock. After getting my rainbow wheel blended I cut the Magic Iris Tropical Leaves Add-on to create my colorful frame.
For the Background I wanted to keep things neutral so that the colors really popped but still give it some fun detail and interest. I used Speckled Eggshell cardstock cut with the Sunburst Backdrop die to create the stitched rays coming out from the center. I also added splatters of gold metallic watercolor on the background for some shine. The sentiment stamped in the center is from the Magic Messages stamp set and I used the same gold paint to fill in the outlined letters and tie things together.
Finally I stamped and colored images from the Toucan Do It stamp set and added them around my rainbow sentiment frame. I also covered up the paper airplane image that is part of the sentiment stamp with a butterfly to make it match the tropical critters surrounding the frame. I love the bright and colorful look the rainbow leaves give to this card. It is very bold and is a great example of how you can detour from the traditional green leaves into other bright colors and get a very different look. Thanks so much for joining me today!
Thanks so much for stopping by and thanks to Chari for being our guest!
