Colours of the Rainbow....

It has been a while since I have seen a rainbow - despite the mix of rain, hail and sun we had yesterday! But it is a great theme from Gothic Arches this week - pick two colours of the rainbow, two stamps, and inspirational words. This is the arch I ended up with after deliberating for ages as to which two colours and which stamps! The peacock is a Basic Grey stamp which I inked up in two colours and applied over a background of swirls created with a paper artsy stamp and yellow chalk eye. I added flowers with distress stickles for the centres to add a little dimension.
