Rainbow Doodling

Here are a bunch of cards I made with my Oodles of Doodles stamps but on a slightly different theme as I've used rainbow ink pads in various ways to make them.

This one has a background embossed with the Cuttlebug Birds and Swirls folder which I then inked using colours from the Memories Festive Moments Chalk Rainbow ink pad. The flower was stamped on pink card in Belle Rose Palette ink and the leaf/stalk in Landscape Palette ink. The stalk is made from the centre section of the corner stamp from Oodles of Doodles 3and has been trimmed to make the shape (a bit of thinking outside the box!).  I added a shell button to the flower centre.

This card has a background of glossy card brayered with the same rainbow pad and then stamped with the single flower from Set 1 in the same ink. The tag was stamped with the same flower in VersaMark ink and coloured with pastel chalks. The large flower was stamped twice in the rainbow ink and just the centre cut out of the second one. These were layered together on the tag with a jewel centre.  I trimmed the edge of the card with scallop scissors and added a contrast strip of card on the inside.

This one uses the same ink pad to stamp the butterfly on pink card, cut it out and emboss on the reverse with a ball tool to round it. The background card is stamped with the circle from Set 1 in Memories Quiet Yellow Chalk ink on aqua card. The other background panel is embossed with the Cuttlebug Floral Screen folder on yellow card. Ribbon was added across the join before sticking the butterfly on with foam tape.

This last for the moment has a background paper made by sponging the rainbow ink through sequin waste on to white card. The other 2 sections are embossed with the Cuttlebug Swirls folder. The heart was stamped in violet ink on card previously brayered with rainbow ink and cut out. A piece of toning braid was added before sticking the heart on and a setiment was added (part of Hobby Art's With Love stamp).



Hi Fliss
Fabulous cards made with your Oodles of Doodles stamps, and isn't it amazing how totally different two cards can look when made with the same stamps. Love the way you have made the flower stem and leaves on the first card, and the stamps look fabulous with such colourful layouts. I can see myself using these stamps many many times and they are so versatile.
Lots of love, Sylvia xxxx
