OLW28 - Color Me Bad

The one layer challenge this week is to use at least five (5!) colors on our card.  Since I just made a Rainbow Fish card yesterday, I thought of a rainbow and all its colors for this challenge.  I don't have a rainbow stamp so I improvised and used my Nestabilities circle dies to draw one.

I had the rainbow all colored in nice and pretty, but it looked a little flat, so I colored it again with my Spica glitter pens.  That made all the difference in this card.

The clouds were sponged with bashful blue, and I rounded the corners to tie all the curves together.  The rainbow and clouds are up on dimensionals.

Supplies used:
Stamps - Hero Arts sentiment
Paper - GKD PL white
Ink - Memento black, bashful blue
Accessories - Nestabilities circle dies, PTI cloud dies, Big Shot, Copics, At You Spica pens, dauber, dimensionals, corner rounder

O.k.  I just realized this probably doesn't qualify for a OLC.  Duh!  Or is it ok to have a popped image?  I think I already know the answer to that question, but thought I'd ask anyway.

Oh, well, I still like it.  A lot.

Oh, be still my heart, this is absolutely gorgeous. And fun. And clever. I never would have thought of using Nesties to make a rainbow.

I think it can squeeze in as a OLC, the rainbow and clouds are simply one big embellishment, right? ;)

Thanks for playing along.

wow this is stunning. using your nestabilities was inspired and you have just become a Spica glitter pen sales person. (Maybe you can get a commission when we all go out and buy our own.)

Hi Karen. I don't see any layers here so I would say it's one layer. Love that sparkly rainbow! How clever to use the nesties!
