Sweet Rainbows

My three-year-old son is into singing the colors of the rainbow song so red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple are often stuck in my head.  As you can see here, those colors were swirling in my mind when I created this card!  Lol!  I embossed the grid pattern stamp with white embossing powder and used Distress ink pads and stains to make the rainbow colored stripes.  Then I spritzed it with some water to help the colors blend better as well as add watermarks for a more textured look.  I inked up this cute monkey and tried to mirror the colors of the lollipop to the background.  It was really fun to do and I'm happy with the results.  Ben Franklin recently had a card contest and I entered this in the Dandelion Designs category.
