Happy Monday!  I had a few moments to make a card to play along with this week's PTI Make It Monday Challenge.  This week  we are to make rainbow medallions using stamps!   

The first thing I had to do was look through all of my PTI stamp sets to see which image to use for this technique.  I saw the Mums the Word set and thought it could work.  While stamping I was thinking the image would looked like a fluffy multicolored pillow; however, by the time it was completed I thought it looked like fireworks!  It only seemed normal to me to add the big star from the Seeing Star die collection to the center.   I  thought the star looked too plain so I added some texture by embossing Meadow Greens sunburst image all over the red star in Zing Rouge.  I added some watermark ink and snow white pigment to add some light and depth to the star.    I layered a few of the stars together for stability.  I added a two toned sentiment from Wet Paints III stamp set.   I finished with some silver, gold, and red sequins!   I love how it turned out!  I am playing along with Seize the Birthday Challenge.  Stars and/or Stripes!

PTI Rustic white, simply chartreuse, and pure poppy card stock, PTI pure poppy, harvest gold, simply chartreuse, hibiscus burst, hawaiian shores, and enchanted evening inks.  PTI Mums the Word and Meadow Greens stamps and  Seeing Stars Collection dies.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
