make a rainbow wish

When the stars  rainbows align...

DD's 20th is this weekend, the CAS Watercolor challenge is ending shortly and I just got a gorgeous new die to play with. Ready?

distress inks
Pinkfresh Studio washi

I realize my ink-smooshed "rainbow" got a bit washed out. The yellow, blue, magenta turned into peach, blue, magenta. I think it's dreamy nonetheless.

I spritzed the panel with perfect pearls/water mix so it really shimmers. Added a strip of washi to my cardbase for a nice touch of gold. I used foam adhesive under the panel but then spent 15 minutes putting little pieces under all those little edges of the letters. (Next time I might die cut fun foam to make things easier.) I wanted the panel raised a bit to allow for some shadow play in the sentiment area...

Hope you likey. Have a great day!
