Wishing on a Starry Rainbow...

Hi everybody,

I'd love to share a card I have made for the current challenge going on over at the delightful AE I Heart U Challenge Blog.  And this time around, the theme is 'Rainbow'.

And here's where i went with it...

So, obviously, I went with a really CAS design.  

I started by tracing around a small circle die, and stamping out this wee little cute star from the Storybook set several times around it, rubbing out my pencil marks afterwards.  And then for the fun part...I got to play with my brand spanking new Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Pens...eeeeek!!!  These bad boys seem to have taking the craft world by storm of late, so, obviously, I HAD to have them.  Now, you can see how small these wee little stars are, so by 'play', I guess I mean more 'unwrap them and hold them lovingly for a while', but the colours are beautiful and intense so worked wonderfully for the 'rainbow' of stars I wanted to create.  Once I'd coloured my stars, I coated them in glossy accents, and gave each one a small sprinkle of glitter,..because rainbows are beautiful and magical...and should always be covered in glitter :)  I stamped out my sentiment, also from the Storybook set, and heat embossed in Black Sparkle powder.  I finished by matting my panel onto black card, and adding to my card base with foam adhesive.
And there you have it, a Clean and Simple. rainbow of stars.

I really hope you like it.
