For my rainbow I used: Red Pepper,  (for orange I mixed the Red Pepper and Lemonade) Lemonade, Bottle, Sailboat Blue & Amethist Ranger Alcohol Inks .   Instead of Yuppo paper, I used HP Photo Paper which grabs the alcohol inks more, so I have a streakier effect than it would have been on Yuppo.  The flower was cut with Essentials by …
