Papertrey Ink Blog Hop September 2011

Here's my take on PTI's September Blog Hop with the top photo for our inspiration.  I found myself more inspired the author's childhood memory of rainbows, so I went in that direction with traditional bright rainbow colors.  I loved drawing rainbows when I was a kid.

I had fun making the piece of striped patterned paper using Faux Ribbon.  I discovered that it was easiest to make the paper by lining up my white cardstock with a gridline paper.  The line stamp fit well inside the 1/4 grid, so I was able to keep things fairly straight.

Thanks for stopping by, and have fun hopping!

Supplies (all PTI unless noted)
Stamps:  Faux Ribbon, All About You, Polka Dot Basics, Signature Series: Flower
Ink:  Melon Mambo, Peach Parfait, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizazz, Marina Mist, Lavender Lace (all SU!)
