Introducing the Goddess Iris

OK... so it is really Bonnie of the Nile (Sassy Cleopatra) from Sassy Studio Designs... but this weeks DTBST (Dare to be Sassy Thursday) is to create a project with three or more colors of the rainbow. Surprise, Surprise - I had to be an overachiever.

When flipping through my images - I kept coming back to this one. So then I did some research on Rainbows, and found out that the Goddess of the Rainbow is actually Iris.  In Greek Mythology, Iris is not only the goddess of the rainbow, but also the messenger to the gods. WOW. So that is perfect for a card that is to deliver a message!!!

For her skin I went with E51, 53, 55, and of course her hair is C5, 7, 9, 110.  It was her dress that took some work! I used the 0x family of colors for all of the different colors as you work. I tried to stick with the correct order of the rainbow as well. :-)  No - I am not anal retentive at all!

I feathered the purple and blues together, and the yellows / oranges and reds.

I have used two different Design Papers. The Starry one is DCWV Stardust matstack. The one behind is Basic Grey.  Mounted all on navy and then added bling.

OK... so that is my card! You should head on over to the Sassy Studio Designs blog and check out the current challenge. There are some seriously SHINY projects this week. Makes me want to sing - Somewhere Over the Rainbow of course!
