VIDEO: Rainbow Bling ~ Coloring Paper Smooches with Stickles

Thanks for joining me for another fabulous Paper Smooches project!  I am SOOOO excited to be back with you guys after working on the other side of the state for almost a week.  I can't tell you how much I miss creating and sharing with you all!

Today I have a really simple but super fun project using one of my favorite Paper Smooches stamp sets!  This Spectrum set is, as the high school kids my hubby teaches would say, totes adorbs! I have used the unicorn on several projects and so I wanted to see what I could do with the little rainbow image, especially since the Paper Smooches Sparks Picture Perfect Challenge for this week is uber colorful!

I opted to go with a bookmark and just keep it simple.  The background is simple Distress Ink shading with some Perfect Pearly water drops.  Then I got crazy and decided to color in the rainbow using a variety of Stickles by Ranger.  These are essentially glittery puff paints - and who doesn't remember those from their childhood??  Am I right??

The end result was a really sparkly, puffy rainbow bookmark that was a breeze to create!  This would be a really fun project to do with the kiddos since there is no complicated shading or anything and the Stickles are so much fun to play with!  Be sure to hop over to the Paper Smooches Sparks blog and enter your project for this challenge!
