A Rainbow of Flourishes

       Good evening friends!!
       Today I'm writing about the first waterfall card I ever made & my first tag. I made this with the theme Rainbow in my mind & so I made it as colorful as I could 

Waterfall card
       There is nothing much to describe, I followed a YouTube tutorial & made it in my own style. For the little tags I used colored card stock embossed with flourishes using clear embossing powder. Then added sentiments to each tag using white embossing powder. 

       For the front panel I used a white card stock & stamped little hearts all around using distress inks in rainbow colors. Handwritten "Keep Smiling " sentiment with a touch of watercolor pencils, again in rainbow colors to add some fun!! 

       Assembled my waterfall card & stuck it to a black card stock to finish my card & added a handwritten quote to the back. 

       Made a matching envelope; doodling using Uniball pens in rainbow colors & doodled the name in black.

       I used a white linen card stock & sponged the distress inks in rainbow colors, clear embossed the same flourishes & then used the latest technique by Jennifer McGuire to lift the colors using a baby wipe. The clear embossed areas retain the colors giving a gorgeous finish. I love this technique. 
       Then added few butterflies & sentiment in black embossing powder.
