Crafty Boots - Rainbows

If it's Bank Holiday where you are, I hope you are having a lovely time...

The new Crafty Boots challenge, set by Emma M, is "rainbows".   I decided that I would make a rainbow coloured tag and reached for my Dylusions sprays as they are such bright lovely colours and ideal for this.

I knew I couldn't spray a proper rainbow so I went for random sprays filling the tag. I tried to stick vaguely to proper rainbow colours!
After the base colours on the tag were dry, I took the Roman Letters stencil (crafters workshop) and the White Linen Dylusion spray, and then stamped the border stitching (from Inbetweenies by Dylusion stamps) in black ink.
I had some pre-stamped hearts (I Love Lucy set by Dylusions) which I cut out and sprayed with the  Funky Fuschia spray.
I threaded them on some thin fusewire, bending them to fit the tag and used double sided tape to both hold the hearts together and fix them to the tag.
I stamped the text (from Quintessential Quotes by Dylusions) on white card, sprayed it with Calypso Teal Dylusion and cut out, then stuck onto scrap white card.  Finished it off with a piece of fuschia ribbon tied in a bow.

Hope you enjoy the rest of your Monday and have a play along with the challenge.
