For Showering Me With Kindness Paper Players Challenge PP494

June 7, 2020

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!

The amazing Anne-Marie is our hostess this week and she has a fabulous theme challenge for all of us.  Sunshine and Rainbows--wow what a perfect time to spread some happiness around! 

My card is created on a white card base.  I added a layer of black.  The rainbow paper was used for the top layer.  The girl image is stamped in black ink from the Simon Says Stamp Follow the Rainbows stamp set.  I fussy cut the image.  Then, I used another piece of paper from the Whimsy Stamps Rainbow 6x6 paper pad to paper piece the umbrella and the skirt.  I colored the rest of the image with Copic Markers.  I heat embossed the sentiment in white embossing powder.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set.
