rainbow sugars

Dear friends,

I am happy my first project with Brown Sugar challenge. Yes, I am on the design team
BSCB - Weekly challenge blog starts on every friday.

This week the theme is super easy for everyone.

Here is my inspiration

I did rainbow watercoloring with my Faber-castel metallic gelatos. Printed the Pray sentiment from Gracielle Designs(the first hand lettered sentiment).. Adhered the rainbow coloured panel to the black cardstock and used foam tape to adhere the pray sentiment. Added papericious embellishments and 3d outliner.
I hope you like it!

The challenge this week is being sponsored by Di's Digi Stamp who is offering $12 voucher for winner.

Visit BSCB blog to see rest of the inspirations from my fellow DTs have for you.
