Spots & Dots Rainbow

I wanted to participate in this month's Mama Elephant Stamp with Me challenge, so I combined it with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. Mama Elephant wants you to use a rainbow and Simon wants you to use spots or dots. I thought, why not a spotted rainbow?

I'm trying to be more diverse when I'm coloring. I seem to always gravitate to blonds or brunettes, so I decided to try using the human rainbow as well as nature's rainbow. I used the lovely Sandy Allnock's Human Rainbow skin tone chart to help me pick my markers this time. I love how it turned out. I guess I pulled a double meaning out of the challenge! I colored all of my little kids and then added clear Wink of Stella to their masks and Glossy Accents to their boots. The background was made by sponging distress ink through a stencil.
