Pretty Pink Posh Rainbow Theme Week

This is my second post for today.
For the Whimsy Stamps day 2 release post press here.


Hello friends!

It is Rainbow Theme week over at Pretty Pink Posh  and I'm on their blog today to share my  rainbow creation.

I decided I wanted to make a rainbow completely out of sequins! So that's exactly what I did!
I'm in love with the new 4 mm iridescent sequins and I thought this was a perfect way to show them off!

I started off creating my rainbow by just adhering my sequins to the paper but I noticed my rows were just wonky and did not look like a rainbow at all so I found something circular in my craft room to trace a faint half circle with. In my case I just used a roll of painters tape but you can use whatever you have on hand that would give you a good guide to start making your rainbow. After I had my rainbow traced out I started adhering my sequins following my traced line, changing colors of sequins each row. I found the best way to adhere the sequins down were to use the Zots bling dots which are just teeny tiny glue dots. I found this worked best simply because I could move my sequins around if I found I wasn't lining them up the way I liked it.

I used the following sequin colors all in 4mm to create the rainbow:

Ok! Now that my rainbow is done onto the rest of my card, I stamped my clouds from the Rainy Days stamp set. My blue clouds are stamped with Bashful Blue ink from Stampin up and then I went in with a blue Copic marker on the edges. My larger cloud was stamped with Lavender ink from SSS.
I fussy cut my clouds out leaving a small white border and adhered towards the top of my rainbow with some fun foam to give them some dimension.

I die cut the Scallop Frames die out of white cardstock to frame my card, I also adhered some fun foam on the back of my frame to pop it up to the same dimension of my clouds.
Lastly, I stamped the 'Brighter Days' sentiment in Dusty Concord Distress ink and the 'Wishing You' part of the sentiment in just black ink from SSS.

That's it for my rainbow card today!! I just love how the rainbow full of sequins turned out!
Thanks for joining me today!
