A Rainbow Inspired Gothic Arch

This is my answer to my lovely friend, Rainbow Lady's challenge, over on Gothic Arches. We were to use 2 colours, 2 stamps and an inspirational comment. I decided to go pink/violet and purple because she didn't!!! We both love the colour, but she desisted and I have jumped in, lol...

I used bubble gum and rum raisin glimmer mists sprayed on to doubly embossed white card. I used swiss dots and stylised flower, through the Cuttle Bug. The stamps are Aspects of Design, by Kay Carley, from the StampMan and a huge dragonfly from Creative Expressions. The words are from a plate by Butterfly Kisses. I rubbed over the embossing and aged the egdes with a lavender chalk cats eye pad and printed with black onyx versafine, embossed in clear ep. I painted with the same glimmer mists. Sakura pens add touches of sharper colour and shimmer and the whole arch is mounted on a sheet of paper, printed from a Joanna Sheen disc. Loads of lovely texture, I hope she likes it!!!

I also want to enter this one into Mixed Media Monday challenge, which is come fly with me.
I would love to shrink small enough to fly with this dragonfly!!

A Card to Cheer a Very Ill Rainbow Friend

Here is a card made for a Rainbow Friend who is terminally ill. We have "known" her for quite a long time, and I want to send her something to cheer her a bit, and to show her I am walking with her. This was a Gothic Arches challenge piece, to which I have added a couple of the inchies I made for the InchyByInchy challenge I set last week. A brown bow and couple of gold peel offs finish off the front.

On the back, I have used some pink card, sprayed with Glimmer mists, and stamps from Lavinia Stamps, which I got at the NEC last month. More brown ribbon and peel offs echo the front, here on the back.

I hope it brings her a smile for a while. Keep on keeping on, Liz.

With Love and Light.
