SHOPPING OUR STASH #194 - Neon Rainbow

Hello and good morning! We have a fun new challenge starting at SHOPPING OUR STASH! We are looking for rainbows! It could be interpreted as using a rainbow die cut, the colors of a rainbow, a picture of a rainbow, or, as the title suggests, you can use neon colors! Lots of options here! Here's the card I made:

 Here's the inside:

I started with a panel of water color paper. I stamped in VersaMark then heat embossed in clear EP. I used Distress Inks as my water colors. I smooshed the pads directly onto my craft mat, then took a paint brush loaded with water and scribbled on the colors, making sure each color touched the ones next to it so it bled together a bit. I'm digging this emboss resist technique! I rummaged around to find some iridescent rhinestones (more rainbows), and mounted the panel on my card base with foam squares. Super easy!

Here's a somewhat better pic of the embossing:
