I think you are Amazing!

It's all about the Rainbow Connection this week at The Card Concept and I'm so happy that another of my favourite challenges is back after their summer hiatus....yippee!

The inspiration photo is fabulous but isn't it always?!!

I really was mesmerized (I know!) by the cascading lights so my idea was to mimic it as much as I could.

I watercolored a sheet of watercolour cardstock using my Zig Real Brush markers.  I just swiped the rainbow coloured markers across the paper horizontally, and then waterspritzed the heck out of it!  I had to use a paper towel dab up some of the water - but with those fabulous markers, the colours just melded together quite nicely!

After it dried, I diecut using Papertrey Ink's Cover Plate: Scallop Die.  It's has kind of a wonky funkiness to it that I love.  I adhered that to a white cardstock base.  

Next, I diecut and stamped the leaves twice from Stylized Autumn, trimming them so they could fit nicely under my "Amazing" sentiment from It's The Thought Die.  I diecut "Amazing" twice - once in black and once in white and adhered them together, offsetting a bit to form a shadow.

The stamped sentiment is from the Make it Market Kit: Nostalgic Notions.

I finished by adding some beautiful Sparkling Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh - a perfect embellishment!!

Thank you for visiting again today!
