Here's how I was inspired:
one layer (I did try though my good intentions were foiled by some ink bleeding...)A lot of these elements are things that I've been loving lately about Anita's cards, so it seemed fitting. And truth be told, I used this as inspiration as well...remember what I said about being nervous...I calm my nerves with lots of inspiration/direction. You'll have to take my word that the second and third colors are actually very different...one is orange and the other is a golden yellow. I'm not sure why they look the same in the photos. I tried taking pictures on different days and in different lighting, but no matter what I did, I couldn't capture the distinction between the colors. It really does look like a rainbow. :)
Anita, I hope you enjoy today (hence the sentiment on the card) and feel special knowing you are loved by many! It took someone I appreciate and admire greatly to pull me out of my crafty break. Wishing you the happiest (belated) birthday ever! :)
ETA: I had a couple inquiries on how I made this. I used PTI's Super Stripes Stamp Set and stamped on watercolor paper using some really juicy Heidi Swapp inks. I double stamped the first stripe in each color to get a slightly darker shade. Then I used SU's aqua painter to brush over each stripe with water. And that's it. :) Super simple.
