A rainbow card

Hi there

I bought this Saturated canary stamp because I knew I had this rainbow/umbrella paper and thought it would work well together.  I've used the sketch from sweet sketch Wednesday challenge this week.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday sketch #141

I used bright colours to colour her to tone with the rainbow colours.  This is what I used:

Stamp - Saturated Canary - Let it rain
Paper K & Co
Distress ink - Tim Holtz Tea Dye
Ribbon - Carnmeal cottage
Die cut umbrella and tag  Cricut paper dolls cartridge
Die cut oval - Spellbinders
Coloured with copics and prismacolour pencils
Glossy accents used on wellies and umbrella handle
All other embellies from my stash

The card is exactly as I had "seen" it before I started the only thing I'm not sure of is the card I used for stamping the image which is Neenah card - it is what I normally use - dont know it its a bit too white - has anyone any ideas for a good card for alcohol markers that not quite so white - suggestions gladly received!

I'm entering this card for the following challenges

Sweet sketch Wednesday - # 141
ABC challenge - jazz it up - bling/glossy accents/ bright colours
Totally papercraft - rainbow
Crafts and me challenges - distressed
Incy wincy designs - recipe -3 embellishments (umbrella, tag, bow), 2 papers 1 image

Thats me for today

Judith, such a gorgeous the umbrellas and the rainbow in your bg. I have used this image and love it, your coloring on it is beautiful, but I am in love with the large umbrella, such a great touch. I know what you mean about the papers sometime not being exactly what I wanted, but in this case with your sponging I think it is lovely as it let's your image just pop off of the paper. Thanks for playing with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

Oh my goodness Judith, I just love this card! First of all I am totally in awe of your coloring on this wonderful SC image. Quite stunning. Second your papers just couldn't be more perfect with the image and for this sketch. And third, that umbrella you created to embellish this beautiful card is an amazing finishing touch. One incredible card that I'm so glad you've shared with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday!
