TAWS and The Cats Meow Purrrfect Together!

The Alley Way Stamps had such a fun TAWS inspiration challenge going on with rainbow colors, that if you know me and my love for rainbows there was just no way I couldn't join in on the fun!  I took my layout for this card from The Cats Meow August Challenge!  And this is what arose:

Supplies Used:
Stamps: TAWS - priceless joy, Penny Black - gingham background
Ink: Paintbox by Colorbox ( all the bright colors ), Memories ( black ), Memento ( grey )
Water paintbrush
heart brad
George and Basic Shapes Cartridge ( circle cut )
White satin ribbon

I loved all of the bright colors, but I really wanted it to be more grounded so this is why I choose the dark blue matting.  To create my rainbow paper I simply took each color out of the paintbox and stamped it onto the paper in the order it was in... I then went over all the colors blending them together with a water paintbrush.  I also "water-colored" the butterfly in with ink and the water paintbrush.
Happy Crafting!
