Fun edgy cards rainbow style - Catherine Pooler stamps & dies

  Hello there, it is Verity here from Pretty Little Button for the Bumbleberry Design team. These two fun cards: rainbow style were very easy to create.

They are very pigmented as is, or you can dilute with water for a softer palette.  When creating the card, I thought the loose sketchy feel of the PinkFresh Studio You Are My Favorite stamp set was perfect for loose colouring with watercoloyr markers.  This bright fresh card is giving me all the warmth of summer!
