Chance of Rainbows

Rainbows are so beautiful and are such a cheering sight after or even during rain, symbolising a new start.  I used this sketch to begin:

I made the rainbow on card by smooshing Distress Inks on a large acrylic block (you know I like to get inky) and just allowed it to happen.  So it was ready to use and I just needed to trim it to shape... and use that perfect sentiment!

Sentiment stamp: Happy Little Stampers

Love that statement - and just allowed it to happen! Got to put the right colours there in the first place though to get such a pretty happening as yours. Thanks for playing along with the favourite technique challenge at AAA Cards.
