{Spotlight Project} Maria Creates A Bloomful Rainbow

Hello there STAMP friends!  Welcome to my first Spotlight of February. I'm playing with the Stamp Club stamp, Bloomful, this month. It's such a fun set and definitely puts me in a good mood. I had this idea in my head and just had to have a go at rainbow-ing it.

Gathered my supplies - MISTI, Versafine black ink, Bloomful stamp set, Neenah CS and my Prismacolors colored pencils.

Lined up the large stamp along the bottom of the panel and stamped it once. 

Opened my pencils and started coloring. I must admit I thought I'd color quickly, in strips like rainbows are. But then I noticed that the design of the doodle kind of lends itself to fussy coloring, mimicking a rainbow's stripes. I wanted to have green at the bottom which meant I started with yellow on top. Put down one layer of color. (Total coloring time: 20 minutes)

See how I actually colored in the shapes, just mimicking a rainbow.

Here it is again after a second layer of color. See the difference in the magenta area where the pencil is? To the left is two layers; to the right is only one.

I must admit I love how the colors turned out. I love that spot of yellow green at the bottom. I get an "earth" vibe from the finished result too. Do you see it ? Wish I could say I planned that ;)

I put the panel back in the MISTI and stamped the image again. Of course, I'd left the stamp in place ;) Love how the MISTI makes it possible to get a nice, crisp black outline after you've colored.

Here's the final card again. I added another image up at the top and a beautiful sentiment. Then I adhered the panel to a top-folding card.

Hope you enjoyed my tutorial. Should you try out any of the techniques from our Spotlight posts, like rainbowing stamped images, be sure to hook up at our Spotlight Project Showcase
