Cardabilities#98 {rainbows}

I had some fun with this card. I love when I get a chance to stamp for the love of it. I actually had a lot of inspiration going into the card. First off, I was inspired by Stacey to use my Gelatos.  You can see her card here. Gosh, the background is gorgeous.

Now,  I only have 4 colors of Gelatos, and I think I need to change that soon.  I used 3 of them here. I started with a piece of kraft cs and gave it a quick wash of white gesso. After that dried, I colored on my three colors of Gelatos, and then misted with water. I used my fingers to blend them.  I used the Stitched Mats-rectangle die from Lil' Inker Designs to cut my base to build the rest of the elements on this card. 

 I was also inspired by the current Cardabilities #98 challenge. I loved all the little bits and pieces the sketch called for. I used a small detailed circle die from Delicate Doliy Die-namics and all the rest of my die cut pieces are from Reverse Confetti (all links listed below). I stamped the sentiment from Dream in Color  in Sweet Tooth Pigment ink and then covered it with white embossing powder. I love how the white just pops against the fun, summery colors. 

Here is the sketch I used. I'm linking up on the Cardabilities Blog

I'm also playing along with this week's Simon Says Stamp Wed. Challenge-Anything Goes. Easy Peasy! Thanks for stopping by.
