One week of Rainbow Sherbet

On and off last summer, I participated in the "Summer of color" challenge by Kristin at Twinkle Twinkle Like a Star. I vowed this summer I would try to do it every week. I'm glad I did..... because this year the color prompt inspiration is favorite ice cream colors! How cool (LOL) is that! For  week one  it's rainbow sherbet...I wouldn't really consider using orange and raspberry together, but it really does work! I am entering the challenge all summer  and I hope you will too.

To make this collage I started with a cream frame and stamped 100 Proof Press sunburst #6350  orange and water colored over it in raspberry. The main  curtain image is a from the Theater Collage Sheet found at  Retro Cafe Art  and is topped with a sweet confection of paper, glitter and fabric flowers. The darling dancers are from the Retro Cafe Art collage sheet Best Friends XOXO. Everything is accented with dots orange and pink  Ranger Stickles and highlighted with water color paints. There are some raspberry pearls for a bit of shine too. The sentiment reads "You're a star."

Hope you will be a "star" in your own performances this week.
take care, gerri
