Reach for Rainbows

I think this image is wonderful and such fun to play with.  Can you imagine how wonderful it would feel to be flying inside a rainbow?  Whheeeeeee ...

Firstly I made the background using watered distress inks. Stamped the silhouette wildflower garden, and paper pieced the cat-kite, shading the cat with sponged distress inks.

stamp: IndigoBlu
Distress inks
White gel pen (eyes)

This is great. The image cracks me up. I love the cat's face and his tail with all the ribbons on it. Very nice, Carol.

How cute! Can't figure out whether he is happy about the situation or not... what a fit for the up, up and away option of the anything goes challenge at QKR Stampede. Dorothy S, DT member

Carol, I'm here wearing two DT hats at the same time and that's not easy to do. :-D I love that cat kite and how you put it into your card design. Fantastic card! Now, I want to say that I'm delighted to see you playing in our "Up, Up, and Away or Anything Goes" challenge at QKR Stampede and also in our challenge at Ike's World.
