Rainbows and Stars

Welcome

I am not sure where this image came from - I think I may have stamped it whilst I was visiting Lovely Linda last year - If I recall correctly it is a Tim Holtz image, but then again...
EDIT : Linda has just let me know the image is from Sparkle n Sprinkle

!!

I fussy cut the focal image, and die cut the sentiment with S/B label 14, and lightly sponged with ink before removing the die.


The background paper had a bokeh look to it, and I added some silver shimmer spray across the top of it before assembling the elements.


The focal panel was layered over some pale green before layering it onto a base of deep forest green. 

This was a simple card to make, but I was very pleased with the outcome.
