A Watercolored Rainbow for Paper Sweeties

Good morning!  I'm off to a bit of a late start thanks to the weather- school is still not starting on time but at least they are having it!  I'm feeling a bit cooped up after the last week and a half of cold :)

With the cold though came some springtime inspiration!  Yes, I'm dreaming of sunshine and flowers and rainbows!!  I pulled out some of my springtime favorites from Paper Sweeties and created a fun watercolored card:

The Rainbow and Roses Stamp Set has the cutest sentiments and rainbow image!  I stamped out the rainbow and a few clouds with Staz On ink onto watercolor paper and painted them with a rainbow of dye inks.  Once they were dry, I cut them out.  I diecut a background panel using a journaling card die and watercolor paper as well.  I used my favorite sky blue Copic marker to color it.

I put everything together and added a sprinkling of sequins from the Sweet{heart} Special Edition Sequins Pack- I love the iridescent and red/pink combo in this pack!

I thought it would be fun to add just one more element to this card and pulled out the umbrella stamp and die from the adorable Showering You With Love Set.  Don't these sets just belong together? :)

The umbrella was watercolored and then cut out using the matching die.  I love it when sets have matching dies and this was especially nice since I was using the heavy watercolor paper!  I added the umbrella towards the bottom on an angle.  It tells more of a story with the umbrella included.

Debbie was kind enough to feature this project on the Paper Sweeties blog today!  Thanks so much Debbie!  I had so much fun playing with my Paper Sweeties stamps!  They really brightened my day :)
