I decided to make a rainbow background with Distress Inks (here's my first one, made last month). I used the same colours as before: Worn Lipstick, Dried Marigold, Mustard Seed, Crushed Olive, Broken China, and Dusty Concord. I sponged the ink onto watercolour paper in a striped pattern. Then I spritzed water through a Heidi Swapp chevron stencil. Still not sure if I have the hang of it yet since I'm a newbie to stencils but I'll keep practicing!
For something different, I mounted the watercolour panel at the bottom left of the card - I like this offset look! I placed fun foam behind it to pop it up. The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted's A Little Sentimental clear stamps, and I heat-embossed it in white on a vellum scrap. Lastly I added several sequins matching the rainbow colours. Notice I even tucked two sequins in behind the kitty! Here are the stamps, inks, and stencil I used.
