Seize the Birthday with RAINBOWS!!

I think this is going to be one fun Challenge at Seize the Birthday!
It is all about RAINBOWS and I can hardly wait to see all the rainbows popping up!
I chose to use a flower stencil and brush on the colors of the rainbow starting with red in the center.

This is what I used:
Ranger Letter it Stencil: Flower Burst
Catherine Pooler Inks
Golden Glossy Gel Medium
Hero Arts butterfly Die: Delicate Butterfly Fancy
Avery Elle:  cake & candles (sentiment)

After the ink was dry, I laid the stencil back down and applied the glossy gel medium.  I think it adds a nice shine to the flower and texture too!

And then I just had to add a butterfly, but I didn't want it to distract from the rainbow flower, so I cut it out in vellum.





That's it friends!  I will look for you in the gallery and don't forget to check out the rest of the team and see the clever ways they used a rainbow on their BIRTHDAY CARD!


Heart Hugs, friends!
