Lawnscaping Challenge #108 - Stars and Stripes

Hey there!  It's time for another Lawnscaping Challenge!  Challenge #108 is to use Stars and/or stripes on your project!  

Challenge #108 is sponsored by the super awesome Lawn Fawn!

Since I don't send out any July 4th cards, I chose to incorporate stars and stripes in a different way.  
I started off with a piece of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor paper, and I used the Tim Holtz Rays stencil and my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to create a rainbow.  I simply colored in the bottom of each ray with a different color of marker, and then used a paint brush, damp with water to pull the color upwards to the top of the stencil.  When it was completely dry, I removed the stencil and used the largest die from the Small Stitched Rectangles dies to add a stitched edge to the panel.  I cut the medium and large clouds from the new Puffy Clouds die set from white cardstock.  Then I stamped and colored a bunch of stars from the Critters Ever After stamp set with coordinating Copic Markers and added some Sakura Stardust pen around the edge of each.  I adhered the stars with foam tape. One layer of clouds is adhered right to the panel with tape runner, and the one is the front is popped up with foam tape.  I stamped a sentiment from the Starry Backdrops stamp set before adhering the panel to a white card base with more foam tape.  I felt like I needed to add something to the clouds, so I stamped the tiny stars from the Lucky Stars stamp set in light grey ink and colored some in with the Stardust pen.

love your card and the rainbow you created with the Zig Brush Pens. Would you please list either the exact color name or color number of the Zig pen you used, I am wanting to get a few of the brush pens and the rainbow colors used looks like a great place to start. Thanks so much!
