Rainbow Magnolia

Hello and happy Tuesday to you! I was playing with my Kuretake watercolors the evening and wanted to work in some rainbow inspiration. 
My card started with a piece of Distress watercolor paper. I used the smooth side and heat embossed the Mondo Magnolia from Essentials by Ellen in Ranger Gold Tinsel embossing powder three times. I was trying to get a foiled look. I then wet the paper and used the watercolor paints to float color at a diagonal.  When dry I cut the paper apart to create the panels and mounted them to a 110lbs white, top folding card base. I heat embossed the greeting from Papertrey Ink Sentiment Staples: Birthday in Ranger Princess Gold embossing powder on  scrap of white cardstock. Popped it up with foam tape also. The photo below is our inspiration from the Pin-Sights challenge on the CLASSroom blog.

I also used my favorite watercolor technique.

Finally we are wishing Simon Says Stamp a happy 9th birthday over on their Wednesday challenge blog.
