Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge - Picture Perfect

Hello there!  Today starts a new Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge, and this week, we have a fun inspiration photo for you!  I can't wait to see how you are inspired by this photo:

I was inspired by the rainbow color scheme and the blue in the top half of the background.  I am an 80s kids, and these blocks and color scheme remind me so much of my childhood.  I was slightly addicted to Rainbow Bright, and this rainbow image from the Spectrum stamp set immediately came to mind when I saw the inspiration photo.  To start my card, I watercolored a piece of Tim Holtz Distress watercolor paper to create a blue sky.  Then I stamped and colored my rainbow and die cut it with the coordinating Spectrum Icons dies.  I popped up my rainbow with foam tape, and behind it, added some clouds using the Cute Clouds dies.  I stamped a sentiment from the Luminous Spring stamp set, and then popped the panel up on a white card base using foam tape.

Sending Colorful Greetings
