I was all setup to color this rainbow on the day that Lily Chilvers (Octopode Factory) death with announced.  She will be missed.

I love the fanciful way this rainbow atc stands up!

  1. Card Base:  Folk Art – Bleu Calyso & Thunder Blue, and Martha Stewart – Antique Silver Glitter.  I created the shape with thin washi tape.  I then used a speech bubble stamp from Inkadinkadoo – inked with Hero Arts – Unicorn, to create the random shapes on the dark blue.  Finally, I pulled up the washi tape.
  2. Image:  Octopode Factor – Over the Rainbow.  Colored with Copics.  I used a craft knife to cut the different color bans in the rainbow apart.  Colored with Copics.
