A Blog Named Hero has a photo challenge this month. I was inspired by the rainbow colors and started playing around trying to make a rainbow. When I was looking for inks to use I found this rainbow ink pad that was popular many, many years ago in the bottom of my drawer. So I decided to make something with that as well. I haven't used that one for AGES!! I ended up with two different cards and since I used almost only stamping on both I'm entering Virginia's View Challenge #16 with both as well.

A Blog Named Hero
The background is made with a chevron stamp. I used the colors yellow, orange, red, pink, purple, blue and green. For each row I overlapped half of the previous stamped chevron pattern. By doing this I got a nice graduated pattern.
I die-cutted the word 'thanks' directly in the background and like five more from scrap pieces of paper. I glued them all together and the piece from the background on top to get the sentiment raised from the background. Finally I added some 3D glaze on it.
My StazOn ink pad is a bit tricky to stamp with, I think I have a poor copy. I don't get enough ink on my stamp and have to press really, really hard. This time I stamped so hard so the paper tore and I got a piece left on the stamp. So I had to add some more decorations, hence the eyelets!
