MIM ~ Rainbow Medallions

Capture the Moment with a new Make it Monday video is up friends.  Dawn is showing a rainbow medallion, using stamps from your stash.  Go check it out!  I looked at a couple and decided on one from Embellishments.  I inked up the same colors that Dawn did...now my BFF will get a kick out of this, because I used a ruler and pencil to draw my lines to make a "T" so I would be sure to follow it straight and not get all wonky!  I decided to die cut the center circle out and then place a new white piece in the center (an inlay!), then I took a strip of paper and placed a narrow strip of the same colors in the rainbow and adhered them all at an angle on the piece of computer paper.  Then I die cut the word "hello" from Wet Paint and voila...all done!  I kind of like this...different but fun and cheery!
 
Go out and make it a great day!
Heart Hugs,
Colleen
