Stampin' Up Jar of Love Rainbow Ombré Watercolor Card

Happy Cinco de Mayo, Peaches! I wanted to squeeze in a quick card before I head up to Tahoe for the weekend. This card has a very colorful background. To create this look, I took 6 different muted Stampin' Up! ink colors and used my aqua painter to add stripes in each color. I didn't let the panel dry in between colors so that they would mix together a bit, creating a sort of rainbow ombré effect. After I added all my colors, I went back added a few more stripes of color to intensify some areas.

While my panel dried, I used the Jar of Love bundle to create a jar/base of flowers as the main focal image. I also watercolored inside the jar itself with Pool Party ink to make it look like it had water in it. This card is intended as a Mother's Day Card, so I added a heat embossed sentiment to reflect the occasion.

One other tip for this card is that when arranging your flowers and sprigs of greenery, I like to lay it out first and arrange it how I like it. Then when I like how it's arranged, I will either snap a picture as a reference or I will even take a small piece of "Press-n-seal" (used to cover and preserve food) and press it on top of my arrangement. This will allow it to stick to the Press-n-seal so you can lift the entire piece up, flip it over, add adhesive, and stick it down as one whole piece. It makes it super easy.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a great weekend!
