Rainbow Trees

Evening everyone. The gift wrapping I mentioned in my last post went well and has been photographed ready to blog. It's a good job I did it so early as I spent way too much time doing it and at least I now have almost a month to admire it before all my had work goes in the bin.

Today's card is a bright and cheerful one.

I do love this style of card, where you just have a strip with the design on it and some words down the bottom. These new Tree Row stamps are perfect for it.

I thought a rainbow design would be a bit different so I set about working out the colours. Initially I intended working my way around the colour wheel (red, red/orange, orange, orange/yellow, yellow etc.) and doing 12 trees but in the end I decided not to chop the end two off and added a paler red to the left and a paler purple to the right.

They were coloured in first with ProMarkers, then I added some Spectrum Noir pencil on top.

These are the ProMarker colours I used.

That was good timing - The Jump is about to start. I'm really enjoying this series. I wonder who will go tonight? Rather them than me in those bobsleighs!
