oh, Lydia, what a perfect MIX today, one to just go into the studio and PlaY...going back to kindergarden! I love this long retired Wordsworth rainbow swoosh and thought it would be wonderful for scribbling with my wax crayons (Gelatos). I embossed the image one and half times across the top of the Basic Grey 'Mon Ami' city skyline and then used the crayons to lay down the rainbow color. I had to paper piece the scene as I only had the 12x12 sheet and wanted more of the gloomy rainy fee at the bottom of the page. (I beg my LSS to carry the 6x6's as the scale is so much better for card art, but alas, I made do). The Most Animals rain drop stamp was randomly placed across the sky with VersaMark and embossed with clear. The wonderful truth sentiment (Inkadinkadoo) was inked with VersaColor Black...and easy peasy, kindergarden grade, I was down!
By the way, I did cut my rainbow sky and deckle the inside edge, I wanted to give some dimension to that layer over the skyscape.
Hope you'll look up wherever you are today and spy a rainbow...with all our rain here we are blessed with many 'bows! Have a wonderful weekend, no matter where it takes you.

Oh what a perfect sentiment! I love your grungy rainbow against the grey. We have a grey windy day here and the promise of rain. We need some more to scrub the winter dirt away. (your thumbnail reminds me of a rainbow sprinkled cupcake ...must be time for afternoon tea) :-)

Wow Susan this looks wonderful. This also fits this months Fan Club Central Theme of April Showers. Everything about this is terrific my friend. There is something about rainbows that always makes me smile.
Don't take your organs to heaven - heaven knows we need them here.
