Lawnscaping challenge #110: color inspired by the rainbow!

Lawnscaping challenge #110: color inspired by the rainbow!

I've used the Lawn Fawn Monster mash for the images and sentiment.

Stamped them with StazOn black ink on water color paper.
At first I used my cheapo paper as it's the most white, but sometimes it tricks you, it pretends to be nice and then starts to wick out color in all directions and not everywhere, just certain spots in the paper.
so I redid it on slightly more creamy paper from Schut, which is also heavy duty 300grams hot pressed watercolor paper...bit fancy really for a small panel on a card, but hey it's worth it ;-)

I also made a rainbow panel for the birthday circle die and diecut it, then glued it on another panel with a circular window. I didn't have the exact same circle size and the sentiment die warped a little and using Aleene's fast grab glue made sticking it precisely a bit tricky, normal glue would give you a longer working time. BUT I forgot that Distress re-inkes would re-activate with the wetness of the glue and I made a bit of a mess on the front crisp white panel...sigh...covered it up with rhinestones...so lol...don't tell anyone ;-)
