3 Rainbow Flower Cards


I have been ordering up a storm of new products during 'quarantine', and slowly (soooo slowly) they are starting to arrive. I recently got the Honey Bee Flower Petals and Flower Centres coverplates and I want to be sure that I use all these new goodies, and they don't end up sitting unloved. 

These 3 cards are the result of one afternoon session.



This card was my original vision - a bright rainbow of flowers popping from a black background. I blended ink over a panel and then cut the panel with the Flower Petals coverplate. I also cut it from black and then I patiently inlaid all the rainbow flowers into the black background.

I finished with a sentiment from Thanks a Bunch.



The second card was a no-brainer - I used the leftover rainbow panel.  I put another layer, cut from the Flower Center coverplate to add some definition to the white flowers, and added a sentiment from Rainbow Wishes. 




Finally, I used some of the many (many!) flower off cuts and I layered them up and put them on a black 'wreath' and added some clear Nuvo Drops to the centres for dimension and shine. The sentiment is from Thanks a Bunch.
