Card for August MMCC: Sunshine And Rain

Hi and happy August!
New Mixed Media Card Challenge has started with a beautiful theme: Rainbow!

Here's my take on the challenge:

Here's how I made the card:
First I drafted the rainbow in the upper corner of the background and cut a matching mask of scrap paper. I placed it over the rainbow corner and inked the other parts of the background with a few blue Distress ink colours. Still holding the mask on it's place I splashed water on the inked area creating lighter splash marks.
Then I coloured the rainbow stripes with Inktense watercolor pencils, using only a little bit of water to dissolve the pigment. Once dry I white washed the entire background by adding a hint of white acrylic paint with a brayer.

Then I heat embossed the stamped quote text (by Cocoa Daisy) on the card front, and stamped the girl face (by 3rd Eye) on white cardstock. For this purpose I needed the image to be larger, so I removed her original hair and replaced it with my own hand drawn and painted version :) I love creating little collages like that.

I hope you get inspired and play along our fun challenge! All challenge details and the gorgeous cards by the design team can be viewed here.

Wishing you a nice day filled with sunshine!
