Without Rain There'd be no Rainbows
Being in a heavy rainstorm can be uncomfortable and we wish that we weren't experiencing the drenching. Our lives can feel like we are being drenched with sorrow, anxiety, financial challenges, family relationship challenges, and so much more. But if we learn to rely upon the Lord, who is the master architect we can see the beautiful that comes after the storm. As a symbol of this truth he gives us rainbows.
I used every other die in the Hero Arts Infinity Circle Dies to create thin circles out of rainbow colors. I cut a circle just smaller than the largest rainbow arch from typing paper and covered it with dotliner adhesive and then adhered the graduating rainbow colored circles. Once they were adhered in place they were cut in half to create a rainbow for two cards.
A stitched rectangle was cut white cardstock and then ink blended with a light blue for the sky. Clouds were cut from white cardstock and adhered in place with liquid glue. The rainbow was laid in place to determine where to stamp the sentiment and then the it was adhered in place with liquid glue. The sky and rainbow panel was adhered to a landscape A2 cardbase with dotliner adhesive. At the last minute I decided to add a little bit of shading the the end of each arch of the rainbow with Copic Markers.
