I can sing a rainbow - Colour Create

Right, I'm sneaking a couple of minutes during my lunch break at work to do this post. Hopefully everyone has remembered that the Colour Create Challenge is now on Thursdays. Today's challenge has given us the following picture for inspiration: So, it's 'Rainbow Colours' and our optional extra this week is to 'Create a scene'.

We're also welcoming our newest DT member Di. Great to have you on board Di. She's made a cracking card for her debut.

We also have some sad news that the talented Judy is leaving the team due to her other commitments. So sorry to see you go Judy and I wish you luck with everything in the future.

Right, onto my card. I think I managed to get all the rainbow colours into the scene - well the song was going through my head as I was colouring this in, so they should be there.

I've used the fab peg stamps again and added liquid pearls in for added dimension on the border. The liquid pearls also feature on the tree in the background of the scene. This is something I've had hanging around in my scrap box since just after Christmas (getting ready for those spring cards) - I just hadn't found the right thing to use it with.

Stamps: WOJ accessory stamp (the hillock) Kodomo Autumn (the trees), Peg stamps Tropical (I think - have to check those out when I'm home)
Daisy and Dandelion Sticker (and the bee is from the same sheet)
Liquid Pearls
ProMarkers and inks

Wowza girl that scene is awesome as is your sweet bear. Your border rocks for sure - I have loads of tapestry stamps uninked so you have given me some mojo sweetie.
