Today's cards come from the Etsy Inpsired Challenge. The featured etsy shop this week is Cathy Walters and she makes some amazing pendants. Below is the pendant that I drew my inspiration from. I like the blue sky background and the curved, colorful stripes on the balloon remind me of a rainbow.
That made think of the sky paper and sweet rainbow sentiment in The Will to Day Dream kit by Paper Makeup Stamps. And I got to wondering how I could create a rainbow for a card. Then it hit me, layer a bunch of smaller and smaller circles on top of each other and cut them in half! All the colored papers I needed were in the kit except for purple, so I grabbed a scrap of lovely lilac and my circle nesties and got started. It worked perfectly and gave me two rainbows, so I made two cards. I decided to set one up vertically and one horizontally - I still can't decide which way I like it better - can you?
I colored the sentiment with markers so I could make the words 'Rainbow' and 'clouds' stand out. I cut it out with a Labels Twelve nestie and edged it with a red spica glitter pen. Each color of the rainbow is edged with a clear spica glitter pen, so the rainbows have a little sparkle to them too. The yellow ribbon and yellow patterned paper are also from the kit.
Thanks for stopping by and I wish you all the beary best!
