RRCB155 Rainbow Crayons

Hi peeps!  Happy Tuesday!  We've got a new Retro Rubber challenge for you: 

I needed a birthday card for a sweet little girl in our church, so I pulled out some really old (2008) Cornish Heritage Farms stamps and a rainbow palette of inks and went to work:

Each crayon was stamped and fussy-cut, then I went searching among all my glimmer papers to find shades that matched and gave each one a star!  They sort of remind me of rockets, LOL!

The Whisper White mat was embossed with the Jumbo Polka Dots EF; I diecut a Stitched Shape circle and cut it in half, stamping a portion of the sentiment on it before adhering it and the crayons to the embossed piece.  The remainder of the sentiment (Right at Home, approx 2016) was colored with matching inks and a blender pen, then also fussy cut and popped up:

The sentiment from Altenew (approx 2016) was stamped in Memento Black and embellished with a few more glimmer stars:

This was a lot of fun to make and I hope she enjoys it!  I am entering this at the Always Fun Challenges this week, which is also rainbows!

I hope you'll play along with our rainbow challenge as well!  Check out what everyone else created at the Retro Rubber blog!  Remember to use stamps that are at least a year old, and give us the age of them as well!  See you there!

Speaking of rainbows, Cassidy and I dyed some Easter eggs on Saturday before we met the baby coyote:

Thanks for visiting today!  Enjoy it and be blessed!

"And God said, 'This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come:  I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth.'" Genesis 9:12-13
