This is for HYCCT1212 - To base a card on a movie or musical tune. I chose "Rainbow Connection" from The Muppet Movie. The lyrics are so fitting, I think.
The background was made by spritzing watercolor paper with water, laying down stripes of Distress Stain and spritzing some more to move the color. When it dried I cut with Labels Eight die and the stamped and embossed the sentiment. If I had done it the other way around, maybe the sentiment wouldn't be crooked - and I know better! (I decided to go with it since this was my favorite of the backgrounds I did.) I spritzed it with Tsukineko PSST Shimmer Spritz in Sparkle - love the sheer result you get with this!
I cut a black foam shape to match for dimension, and layered the bg onto a Decorative Labels Eight layer. This is attached to a shaped card.
The butterfly I cut months ago from a Cricut cartridge I borrowed - don't have a clue which one -sorry. I'd borrow it again if I could figure it out because I think this butterfly is gorgeous. He was given a little sparkle spritz, too.

Oh, good for you! That song popped into my head yesterday, and I wondered if anyone would go with it. Love the bright background and the contrast of your diecuts. Thank you so much for playing along with my challenge, and supporting Hope You Can Cling To!
