Life's all Rainbows & Unicorns!

Hi all :)

I'm sharing with you a bright and cheerful card that I had so much fun making! It makes me smile every time I look at it, I hope you feel the same way :)
I love merging these gorgeous 'Funky Girls' with the amazing background images you can find in the Make it Crafty store, Rainbow Meadow is the perfect backdrop for 'Unicorns and Rainbows' don't you think?

I decided to colour most of the background monochromatic grey so that the rainbow and the funky girl would 'pop' off the page somewhat, I also popped up the sentiment and placed some 'Mini Butterflies Chippies' on to add some fun and a little depth. I used some glitter gel pens and a white gel pen on the rainbow to give it a bit of 'sparkle'.

I coloured the scene with my Copic markers -

Monochromatic Grey - C1, 2, 3, 4

Rainbow - YR12, 15. Y06, 08, G43, 24, B41, 45, V22, 25, 17, Glitter Gel Pens and a White Gel pen

Funky Girl -

Skin - E000, 00, 01, 11, 04

Hair - RV52, 63, 55

Dress - Y04, 06, 08 15, YR12, 15, 16, 18

Unicorn - B41, 45, V22, 25, 17.

I coloured the butterflies with 'Smooch' - Sassy Pink, Grape Soda and Pool.

Thank you for taking the time to read my post :) I hope you have a lovely day

Breaking Through the Wall!

Hello friends, how are you all today? I've had a such a fun time creating this card I couldn't wait to share it with you!

Brick Wall Background  and Scaredy Cat

I stamped the Brick Wall Background on both the front and back of a piece of blending card, completely coloured one side and only coloured the area that was opening on the back side. To achieve the opening I drew a circle with grey lead pencil then roughly in the center with a craft knife I cut back to the outside of the circle on a diagonal and repeated that around the entire circle then folded each 'triangle' back so it looks like Scaredy Cat is breaking through. 
I then stamped a third Brick Wall Background and coloured just one row, cut them individually and mounted them with mounting tape to form a 'pile' of bricks. 
The 'Need a Hug' sentiment is part of the 'Scaredy Cat' rubber stamp by Doodle Dragon. 

Copic Colours I used
Bricks - E53, 55, 57
Grout - E42, 43
Scaredy Cat - YR02, 04, 07, 18, 27. T3, 5, 7, 9

I hope you enjoyed viewing this card as much as I did creating it!
