Runway Inspired Challenge #4

 What do you think about this inspiration photo from Runway Inspired Challenge #4!? Delicious, isn't it? Right now the temperature is way low and we are fully covered with snow outside. These rainbow colors sure is a beautiful sight to see. Feeling so inspired, I made a card with the one set of Clean and Simple stamps (sponsor of this challenge)  that I have.
you color my world
I swiped the small rectangular pigment dye inks ( from Color Box) over the white paper to create a colorful background. I chose bright green to highlight the entire the design and that's why I only colored the paint brush in green. The sentiment was colored with copics. So I finally got my dosage of colors today. Now I need to get back to the exercise routine...yes, I had slacked fallen off the 30- min-a- day routine a few times now, but the point is to get back on it, right!? We've got to stay on the positive side!

Lastly, thank you so much for the wonderful responses to the Virginia's View Challenge # 1 over Lily Pad. We have so many beautiful entries already! I love it when the photo inspires....such as this colorful runway photo! Enjoy your day!

Rainbow colours? I might have to give this Runway challenge a whirl just for that :)
I love your card - the highlighted brush, and the coloured-in letters are so clever!
And as for exercise, congratulations for doing it! My hubs criticizes that I don't go fast enough - with the dog - but I always believe that no matter how much you manage, it is always better than doing nothing at all. So good for you, Virginia!
