Painting the roses rainbow... (GD Gig #1)

I earned myself a guest design spot this week over at The Crazy Challenge. The theme is Flower Frenzy and this is what I came up with.

I am using paper roses from Crafty City. I sprayed them with Dylusions Inks in Pure Sunshine, Sweetened Orange, Bubblegum Pink, Postbox Red, Crushed Grape, London Blue, and Cut Grass. Can you tell yet that I'm not lyin' when I say that rainbow is my favorite color? :) The sentiments are from the Simon Says Stamp March Card Kit and stamped in Versafine Black Onyx. You can't really tell from the pictures but the flowers are so dimensional!!

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
