Who killed the rabbit? Well in a polluted world even the rainbow is deadly! You can save other rabbits stay alive by being green!

Step 1 - Create the rainbow

Open a new file, size 500/500 pixels. With the Ellipse Tool draw a perfect circle. Te color is not important. Call this layer Shape1. Lets add a gradient to this circle. Go to Blending Options and do the following settings:

The color for the gradient are:red #fe0101, orange #fe7201, yellow #f6d707, green #54fe01, blue #01bffe, purple #e073f4 and white.

As you can see I put the colors 2 times on the gradient at 3 % distance because I ont want to have a gradient from one color to another. I want distinct colors.

In the picture below I put all the distances for each color.

The result so far is this:

Step 2 - Rasterize the image

For now we have a vector shape with effects applied; I can not modify it as I want to so duplicate this layer and call it Shape2. Select the 2 layers Shape1 and Shape2 and merge it into one layer. Call this layer Rainbow.

Now with the Magic Wand Tool, tolerance 0 select the red area and press CTRL+C and CTRL+V. Another layer was created only with the red area from the rainbow. Call this layer Red.

Do the same for the other colors from the rainbow. You should obtain 6 new layers.

Hide the Rainbow layer. The result so far is this.

Step 3 - Add Blending Options to the Color Layers

I will take as an example the Red layer. Go to Blending Options of this layer and do the following settings:

Inner Shadow color #b70303

Stroke color #820202

Do the same for all the other layers but with different colors from the palette of the layer color.

Step 4 - Add Rust Effect to the Rainbow

Go to every Color layer and delete the bottom part of the circle with the Eraser Tool, brush size 55, opacity 100%.
