When It Rains, Look For Rainbows ft. Craftin Desert Divas

EDIT: Winner at MarkerPOP

Good morning! I'd like to share one of my favorite quotes with you today. It's: "When it rains, look for rainbows. When it's dark, look for stars." I decided to hand letter this quote with a white gel pen and use it as the sentiment for today's card.

The digital image I used is Rainy Day Girl from Craftin Desert Divas. I colored her with Copics in rainbow colors so it matches the sentiment. Then I colored a piece of glitter tape with B32, B34, B37 and cut 3 raindrop shapes from it. I adhered all of the elements on a strip of patterned paper and that finishes off the card. It's fairly simple with the black and white and a little burst of rainbow colors scheme. I hope you enjoyed it and thanks so much for stopping by!

Fabulous Peacock ft. Craftin Desert Divas

EDIT: Top 3 at Cut It Up
Hello and welcome! I have a super colorful card to share with you today. The colors are heavily inspired by Craftin Desert Diva's May challenge mood board (shown below). (Join or read more about the challenge here!)

For this card I decided to pair up the Pretty Peacock digi with one of my favorite patterned papers of all time. I also adhered a piece of washi to the left to add a little more interest to the background. I colored the peacock with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush pens and adhered small pearls to his feathers. Then I die cut a white scalloped circle frame with a die from the Stitched in Circle set.

It is hard to capture on camera, but I did add a generous coat of glitter with my Wink of Stella. I then wrote the sentiment with a white gel pen and tucked the sentiment strip behind the peacock.

I finished off the card by adhering some enamel dots. I hope you enjoy today's card, and have a wonderful day!
