love rainbows

When I was a child one of the things I liked to do with colouring pencils was create a rainbow or sunset behind a printed silhouette.  So when I saw the Inspiration Avenue challenge for this week was ‘over the rainbow’ I had to play.

If only rainbows were this big !!

The technical stuff for those who want to know

I created the rainbows using the gradient tool in Photoshop elements and then used the eraser tool to remove part of the rainbow to fit the photo.  In the second one the gradient is applied in the diamond shape and I used the dissolve blending mode to give the speckled effect.

Well, if you're standing in one, it probably looks that big!
