a happy day - rainbowed

I've always loved me a rainbow. And then Laura Jane's daughter proclaimed that everything looks better "rainbowtized". I agree completely!

You might remember this cake card. So when I pulled out my second new stamp from Concord and 9th, it got rainbowed with Distress Inks and a paintbrush.


I actually intended to play with Where Creativity meets C9 Floral challenge, but alas it's over! The new challenge is about Layers so I'm going to claim that these cake layers fit the theme ;) And I'm playing over at The Flower Challenge too.


And then, because the layers of the cake image reminded me of the Altenew June challenge photo, I watercolored the layers with mauve and purple tones and the blooms with a bit of white and Wink of Stella.


The XXL heat embossed sentiment gives this simple one-layer design a little kick.


I'm taking both these cards over to Happy Little Stampers Watercolour...



And because Sunday's sky was just so darn gorgeous, I'll leave you with this...
