"She loves me, she loves me not..." Some people say this while picking the petals from a flower. Make this fortune telling game more interesting with a rainbow flower drawing!

This easy, step-by-step cartoon flower drawing tutorial will help you master the rainbow flower outline in no time.

Are there really rainbow flowers? Yes, there are! Rainbow flowers are created "by splitting the stem and dipping each part in different colored water."

Scroll down for a downloadable PDF of this tutorial.

As the flower "drinks" the water, the colors are drawn into the petals. Roses, carnations, hydrangeas, chrysanthemums, and orchids can be dyed in this way.

Bouquets of rainbow-colored flowers are offered by many florists. You can even dye your own flower at home.

Get a flower with white petals, and mix food coloring into its water. In a few hours or overnight, it will absorb some of the color.

Rainbow flowers symbolize happiness and joy. This is fitting, as the bright colors are sure to bring a smile to your face!
