Gold Within the Rainbow

I don't often have a clear vision of how I want a card to go.

That's the fun of creating~there's magic in the process itself.

This card, however, was one in which I had specific details I wanted to master.

 First of all, gold "dipping" with washi on a trendy rainbow and a sentiment to match.

(dies:Papertrey Ink SAF 2014-1980's Kit  other:Scotch Glitter Tape,silver washi,confetti)

To achieve my dipped rainbow, I slapped down a strip of glitter tape on two colors I wanted to work with.

I die cut my rainbow and pieced together the opposing colors.

I purposely staggered the bows so that the edges had interest against the silver clouds (achieved with two rows of silver washi die cut).

Since I didn't have a sentiment to match, I typed my own on Word.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Wow, I love this card Marlena! The rainbow is so cool looking, I love the gold "dipping" and I love that you staggered the ends of the rainbow. It really gives nice interest to the rainbow. Love that you made your own sentiment with the computer too. Hugs, Brenda
