Over the rainbow

My turn to host the challenge in the Crafty Secrets member forum at Splitcoast Stampers this week (here). We're taking inspiration from the Wizard of Oz, either by going over the rainbow (using at least three completely different colours) or drawing on the movie's icons (red shoes, yellow brick road, wicked witch of the west etc) as project themes.

I chose the colourful option and used chalks to make a freehand rainbow on the image panel and used the same colours around the edges of the card base, too. Chalks are often neglected around here and it's fun to pull them out for a play every now and again!

Stamps:
Vintage Silhouettes (Clear Art Stamps by Crafty Secrets)

Paper:

Neenah Classic Crest

Ink:

Versafine by Tsukineko (Onyx Black)

Other:

Chalks by Pebbles Inc
Silk ribbon
Vintage buttons
Sewing machine and thread


Thanks for stopping by!

Love your take on the Wizard of Oz - have to say not my favourite theme - but your interpretation is gorgeous. Always forget to use chalks! Another stamp to go on my wish list.

Millions of rainbows over the years, but none quite so gorgeous as yours. I keep coming back to it to snag another sigh of peace.......not exactly a great description of how your art makes me feel, but as close as I can get.

Thanks for sharing,
