Do What Makes Your Heart Happy!

Good Morning - and it's time for coffee (waaay past time!)  - and hearts!

This week's inspiration at The Challenge has a Rainbow Heart theme !!- and I just happen to love rainbows - doesn't everyone?

Since the Gansai Tambi water-colour paints are so brilliant and beautiful, I painted up an easy rainbow on water-colour paper.

Using Cas-ual Friday's Heart Board Fri-Dies, I die cut the hearts from my rainbow paper, being careful to keep them altogether - I love them apart and I love them together!  I just used a piece of tape on the back of the hearts so I could move them around until I had finished with my fiddle diddling.

I needed to add something else - and I really, really, really wanted to add twine - it's a daily struggle I tell ya. I finally settled on some semi-messy gold thread looped around a red button.  I mean - GOLD at the end of the rainbow!!!

Perfect. I'm just brilliant.

I used the remaining water colouring for the base, layering white cardstock overtop.

I stamped the sentiment from Cas-ual Fridays Big Treble on my white cardstock and popped up the water coloured heart dies!

So pretty and so very trendy!  Take a peek over at The Challenge and link up those rainbow creations!
