Art Impressions Challenge - Rainbow




This week's Art Impression's challenge is Rainbow. What does that look like for you?  For me, I was thinking a meadow with a pot of gold. :o)  I had to have a tree in my meadow, AND the tree had to have  fall colored leaves.

To get my vision, I stamped the tree and colored it. Next, I used a blending tool to add grass and sky with Distress inks. I used more than one shade of color to give the scene some depth.


I stamped the little pot of gold onto gold metallic cardstock. For detailed images, I like to use VersaFine ink. It takes longer to dry, but really captures fine lines.  For the leaves I used Distress inks.

I placed the pot on the scene and drew a light pencil at the top. I set the pot aside and added the rainbow with my Spectrum Noir Markers. I used a plastic curved lid as a guide for my rainbow.  Look around your house for supplies - they are everywhere! :o)
