You can't have a rainbow ...


... without a little rain.

A simple one layer card using copics for the rainbow and to colour the Funstamps Puddle Duck image that was inked with memento tuxedo black.

I'm not really happy with this, but it was my second attempt and I didn't fancy trying again, so I thought I'd leave it at this.

All the colours of the rainbow inspired by the picture given for The cutie pie 44:

Sequin waste stencilling


I've been playing with the gelli plate again this afternoon - it's quite messy, but a good way of relaxing.

I based the colours on those given for Moving along with the times: colour:


I used some mint green card to start with. I didn't have any purple or pink acrylic paint, but mixed reds, blue and white in different shades. I used sequin waste as a stencil. The ric rac and rib bons are Papermania.The Tim Holtz stampers anonymous stamp was inked with memento grape jelly (sorry, this doesn't show up very well here). The sentiment was originally white so I used a couple of copics to colour to match.
