Little Tangles Challenge # 78

Hi there everybody and welcome to the Little Tangles challenge for March!! We have a fantastic, colourful theme for you this month:

You can't beat rainbow colours on a card design and for all of you on the otherside of the world where its freezing cold, hopefully all these rainbows will brighten your day!!

I decided that my Ziggies needed more love and I wanted to try and create the brightest rainbow ever. I wasn't disappointed:

I should have put a warning at the beginning of the post to say you may need glasses to view this creation!!

I began by cutting a panel of water colour CS. I've been watching a lot of videos by Kristina Werner lately on water colouring. She gives so many amazing tips and tricks to getting a result you like. This rainbow would never have happened if not for her!!

I basically used a big brush to do a brushstroke of water across the panel, added the colour straight from the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Marker across the panel and then used a smaller brush and water to spread it out. I then used the bigger brush to put a stroke of water underneath and off I went again. This way I was able to get some blending between the colours but also control the strength of the colour. I hope this makes sense!!

I cut the panel down to size and then die-cut the Heart of Gold die from the middle of it. I also die-cut the heart again from some white CS. I glued a piece of acetate across the back which gave me somewhere to inlay the white heart against. The panel was then popped up on foam tape. I stamped the sentiment from Big Bold Brew twice in black Versafine Ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder to give it some shine. I just cut it out and put it on foam tape. No sequins needed for this bright number!!

I'm going to link this to the AAA Card Challenge # 84 where their theme is:
