I can not stop creating rainbows! It’s addictive, putting together the beautiful rainbow colors and creating a scene for them. Here I’ve created a Gingerbird rainbow from the Gingerbird Christmas stamp set!

Let’s build a rainbow from colored cardstock die cuts!
Lots of my favorite things are here on this card. First would be birds! I watercolored the birds with my best watercolor paper, you MUST try it to see how great it is. The little birds are painted with my new set of Daniel Smith watercolors. I’m really liking them and would put them up there with my Mission Mijello set. There are some watercolor purists that use Daniel Smith exclusively, and for good reason, but I’m still loving my set of Mjellos. I’d love to hear your thoughts about your favorite paints.
The rainbow was created from scraps, believe that? Last week I die cut 6 rainbow components for this card and had lots of extra pieces left over. I can’t have too many rainbow die cuts 🙂 But the clouds have got to be my favorite on this project. The clouds are very intricate in the Rainbow Die Set from Trinity Stamps. There’s a thin outline to the cloud as well as a stitched inner line. Totally versatile so I removed a few of the outlines and used them in the design.
