Rainbow Connection

Day 105 over on 365 Cards is Singalong Saturday and is a challenge to do a card which springs to mind on hearing the song 'Rainbow Connection'.
I had real fun doing this and I am honestly loving this blog as for some reason it is bringing out things from the!! of Me and my stash!
The paper, would you believe, is a download from Kraft Cardz with the date 2005 :-O
How perfect is that for this challenge.
I am not an artist, but I love to play, so I swooshed rainbow coloured misc. pigment ink stamps across a piece of white card and heat embossed it with clear emb. powder, then cut it into an arc with my Fiskars hand cutter.
The stamped images of the pot and the flower were in my stash of swapped images, which I appear to have coloured using Sakura Gel Gloss pens. The stem and leaves are leftover pieces of Anitas sticky ribbon, I waste nothing.
The sentiment is by Hero Arts and I matted & layered it on colours of the rainbow bits of card, that was hard, I'm not the best cutter in the world either.
So there you are my take on 'Rainbow Connection'....a rather fun, naive sort of card which I thoroughly enjoyed making.
