Rainbow means hope for the future?

To cut a long story short: I couldn't sleep, and wanted to make a card to send to my Auntie Kati.

Kati is my mum's younger sister and she has sort of always been my rescue. When I was a kid and horrible teenager, Kati was the one, who offered me place to sleep and supported me in many ways.
If I said "I can't do this, I don't know how", she looked at me and said, "Anne, yes you can, trust youself".

Again last night it was Kati, who got me through a very difficult thing. She knows what I mean.

Card just came out like that, just like that. No way! Well, sort of...
I wanted to paint something and before long the flower pot was there.

There are few Rainbow Challenges now, and I realized the flower pot already had red, orange, yellow, green, violet and blue. It was very easy to continue with the theme. Sky blue backing paper and indigo (?) metallic border.

Card absolutely needed that love letter :)
BUT we do not know what it says there. ;)

I have no idea what those paints are,
some tiny little pots and give great metallic shine.
Maybe oil paint.  (How would I know, I just work here LOL)

Rainbow. Seven colours of satin ribbons. Side by side.

Cardstock again from Tesco (I love those prices)

  21. For Paper piecing you repeat your image onto different coloured or patterned papers, as well as one on white card. You can either print a digi image or stamp it. Then you cut bits from the images on the paper and glue them on your plain one. I did a yellow image and cut out her hair. From another paper I cut her top, another her jeans, and one for her shoes. You then do a little shading on top besides colouring your image. It's a lot of work but I really do like the finished look.

  22. Linda, aaaah. Ok. I mixed piercing and piecing up. Sounds very interesting. This is lovely, always new things :)

  23. You are so very talented, your card is so beautiful. I really love the painting you did, thank you for sharing. Thanks for joining us @ OSAAT, hope too see you next week.
