Only the brightest hues.

I have been waiting to play with my December Unity SMAK kit and just love the Moroccan tile background stamp in there so it was the first one I grabbed to ink up. I clear embossed it on watercolor paper and used some rainbow hues to color over it for a resist. It didn't turn out quite like I pictured and needed something else but I didn't want to cover it all up either so I stamped the butterfly from the November SMAK kit on some recycled clear packaging and cut it out and folded the wings up for a little dimension.
The sentiment is from Unity's She stamp set and the chevron paper is American Crafts/Amy Tangerine. I added an epoxy heart over the spot on the wing where the heart was supposed to be because it didn't stamp clearly due to a small slip on the acetate.
 
I made this card with no one in mind but when it was finished I knew it would be perfect for my daughter.  At 5 she loves rainbows!
 
We are back to school and back to reality this week after what feels like a very long winter break.  Hope you all have a great first week of the year!
