Rainbows and Sunshine with Audrey!

Hello there!  Audrey here with some rainbows and sunshine for you! :)

I wanted to play along with the new WPlus9 sketch challenge, so I used that sketch as a jumping off point for my card.  I diecut a piece of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Paper and a piece of white cardstock using the Sunshine Layers dies by WPlus9.  Using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Border dies, I cut a curve in the piece of watercolor paper.  Then, using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, I scribbled a rainbow of stripes along the curved edge, and wet them with clean clear water and a paint brush.  As I added water, I tipped the paper a bit to allow the color to run.  When I was satisfied with the color, I let it air dry, and then glued it to the left side of the other scalloped rectangle.   I diecut a bunch of clouds from white cardstock using the Sunshine Layers die set, and the word "sunshine" from black cardstock.  I stamped "hello" from the Sending Sunshine stamp set to complete the sentiment, and added a few raindrop clusters from the same set.  To give them a bit of dimension, I added shine markers with a white gel pen.  I threaded a yellow  button with Lawn Fawn Black Tie Lawn Trimmings and also used that to add a bow to the top of the card.  I popped the entire panel up on a black card base with foam tape, and added some Lily White sequins to finish things off.
