You Color My World at Paper Play Sketches

Hello Crafty Friends,

What a busy Winter Break it has been, which is why I am running a tad behind with my Paper Play Sketches Design Team post. We spent two days before Christmas repainting the master bathroom and during the last three days we have painted the interior of the kitchen, breakfast nook, and my craft area (suppose to be a family room). We had "stuff" moved all over, so getting to the computer at times was challenging. We are finally done..well...except for new valances for the wide window in my craft area. I still have a few pieces to put away, but it must wait until after a trip to Ikea tomorrow. 

This Week's Challenge...

Here is my Design Team project...
I wanted to make something cheerful and I had this rainbow that I had never used.

First I cut the MFT Zig Zag Stitched Oval die. Then I used watercolor to create the soft background. While the background was drying, I cut the Paper Smooches rainbow die 6 times in the various colors with my Cuttlebug. I cut the MKC clouds on my Cameo.

The sentiment is by Jaded Blossom ~ Dream in Color stamp set. I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink.

The chevron paper is by  Doodlebug Designs ~ Kraft in Color stack.

I alternated the gem color with the opposite background paper.

Now, I hope you will  join us this week for the Paper Play Sketches challenge. Be sure to visit the other Design Team members to see how they interpreted the sketch.

Happy New Year!
