Watercolor Rainbows and A Touch of Gold

Hello Friends! Today I have a watercolor background to share:
We had a beautiful full rainbow over our Capitol last week, and it just inspired me to create a rainbow background. I used my Kuretake paints on watercolor paper. When it was dry, I stamped my sentiment (The {Stamps} of Life) in VersaFine Onyx Black ink. 
Since gold is associated with rainbows, I used Metallic Gold Baker's Twine from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and wrapped it several times around my card, fanning it out. I then tied all the pieces together with a half bow and added some sequins (Pretty Posh) for sparkle! All of my layers are held together with Scor-Tape and Foam Tabs.

That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by!
