Gold at the end of the Rainbow

Happy Monday!

Have another “Pot of Gold at the end of the Rainbow” card to share. This one took its inspiration from Splitcoast Sketch Challenge SC581.

I didn’t have any pattern papers with a St. Patrick’s Day theme, so I created my own using Plaid Plus and Multi Step Paint Splatters

Finding a Lucky Rainbow

Patience paid off with this card!

This was one of those “card ideas” that came to a screeching halt shortly after I started, then sat untouched over the past couple of months … ever have one of those projects? 

Green-Hills-Pot-O-Gold

Green-Hills-Pot-O-Gold by Kitchen Sink Stamps

With St. Patrick’s Day in mind and using the set Multi Step Rolling Hills, I was determined to turn green hills into something a bit more “magical” to surround a pot of gold (from Multi Step St. Patrick’s Day 4 Ducky & Teddy)… but I had no rainbow.  😦

After I stamped my “Irish Spring Hills”, I was stuck… so I pushed it off to the side and there it sat … and sat!

Then a few days ago, a “lucky” thought hit me! I could use Step #1 from Multi Step Lucky Horseshoe and bend it open just a bit (didn’t want to tear it) and maybe it would look like a rainbow!

Stamp

First-Layer-rainbow It worked! Above shows the following colors: Lady Bug (red), Dandelion (yellow), Bamboo Leaves (green), Danube Blue and Grape Jelly (purple). Great start, but I wanted the full-color spectrum of a rainbow (who doesn’t?)

Stamping again the in between colors (magenta, orange, yellow green, green blue, violet blue) while overlapping the previous colors, would do the trick.

YaHoo!

Second-Layer-rainbowAbove shows Tangelo overlapping Lady Bug & Dandelion.

After I had my rainbow, the rest of the card came together really quick! I guess it is true … “Good things come to those who wait”!  Just glad the idea finally came before St. Patrick’s Day did! 😉

Here is a close up that shows the embossing powder on the hills and I added Rock Candy Stickles to the rainbow and gold.

Have a Magical Day!
