The Rainbow Connection





  When I hear the word "rainbow" I instantly think of Kermit, sitting on a rock, strumming his banjo. Ahhh, the good ol' days! I love rainbows, I always have and when I saw this weeks Papertrey Ink Make It Monday I was excited to play along!  I also wanted to play along with the Moxie Fab World 75 Creative Cards Challenge - Create Your Own Background challenge I. Love.This.Card! Yes, it was a bit labor intensive, but the end result is so pretty! I used the PTI Sheet Music Background Basics set, and using a sponge, I daubed ink on the stamp for each color, stamped, and repeated the process 2 more times.  I added a sentiment using Think Big Favorites # 12, and a die cut butterfly from the Beautiful Butterflies collection. After I cut my card stock I ran it through my crimper. I finished off my card with a Plum Pudding button tied with twine from The Twinery! Since I had all my inks out, I stamped two more cards and will get those finished and posted in the next couple of days.  Thank you so much for stopping by!

Gorgeous! I can't believe you sponged the stamp to create such a perfect rainbow. It is so soft and pretty, and the contrast with the black butterfly and sentiment is brilliant!
