Challenge # 5 Inspiration with Shannon

Hello friends!
Shannon here today, to share some inspiration with you for the challenge 5 Tic-Tac-Toe board! For my card today I decided to use the second row down, Beads, Gold, Rainbow.

I used the Unicorns and Rainbows stamp set and Rainbow High die cuts from Mama Elephant to create my card. For my card base I used some gold foil cardstock I cut with a rectangle scallop die from Avery ElleFor my main card panel I started with white card stock and used a cloud mask I created with a puffy cloud border die from Lawn Fawn. I blended blue ink over my clouds several times to create my subtle cloudy background. I colored my rainbow with Copic markers and covered with a clear Wink of Stella Glitter pen.

 I covered my die cut clouds Diamond Stickles and adhered on the bottom of my rainbow. I stamped my unicorn on white cardstock, colored with Copic markers and fussy cut it out to adhere over my clouds. For my other two die cut clouds, I covered them in some Silver Shimmer Seed Beads from Pretty Pink Posh. This process was a little messy. The way I found worked best for me is to cover a little but of the cloud at a time and put a few beads on at a time. Once covered in the beads I went completely over with glossy accents and rubbed it down with my finger just to secure that none of them will come flying off.

I stamped my sentiment with Versmark ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. To finish off my card I added a small gold heart beside my sentiment.

I hope I was able to inspire you a bit, and that you will play along with the challenge! Love looking at what you all create! Have a lovely day!
