Like I said, today is all about ‘handmade’ rainbows! I started with a Butterfly Copic Rainbow using the Kisses for my Sweet Stamp Set.

The sentiment is from a fun set called Good Wishes.

I decided to make a Rainbow blended stripe panel using the Distress Oxide inks and stamped the puppy from So Much Love.

I coloured him with Prismacolor Pencils and added a great mix and match sentiment from Only You.

My most simple design is next with a Copic hand drawn Rainbow and A Big Hug bear!

I added a Let’s Chat speech bubble sentiment and some sequins.

Next I wanted some pastle coloured rainbows and made a water fountain elephant card using the Love & Cuddles Stamp Set.

The sentiment is from the Love Sentiments Set. And this card was inspired by my friend Kara and her fabulous card and video HERE, check it out!

My final design has a simple watercolour striped Distress Ink background using pastel colours again. I stamped the Blushing flower 3 times

  1. Therese, they’re all tremendous fun! [I like your hand-drawn rainbow as well as any rainbow stamp on the market!] Can’t wait to watch. ..xx
    =]

  2. Great cards. I like the hand drawn rainbows, especially the sweet butterfly card. The elephant water rainbow is such a unique way to incorporate a soft rainbow.

  3. Your videos never disappoint! This is another winner- I love each card and watching you create. Thanks for the inspiration and all you share!!

  4. Always love your Penny Black creations. These are no exception and you’re always so inspiring❤️

  5. What a fantastic collection, Therese … each one looks so different from the others! I especially love what you did with the butterflies … it really does seem as though the rainbow is coming from that gorgeous kaleidoscope of colours! Funnily enough, I made a card very similar to your last one not long ago (it’s still unpublished!) … great minds maybe? That’s what I like to think anyway … she says, aspiringly!! Hugs, Anita 🙂

  6. LOVE the butterfly rainbow card! Great colors and the simple black outline image is perfect. The bear card is so sweet. I have this stamp, so….can you guess what my next project will look like?
    Thank you for sharing your ideas. Your mind is so creative!

  7. I was mesmerized watching you create each one, Therese, and so surprised to hear you mention my card as an inspiration! Thank you for that, I actually have some new YouTube followers since your video. I love each of your rainbows from the light to the bright, and each of the sweet Penny Black images that you paired with them!

  8. Love these. Especially the couple card with the butterflies. It’s so exciting when I see your Gimme Me 5 emails!

Thanks for visiting! I'd love to hear what you have to say.
