Have a colorful day

Sparkle and Shine Challenge #27

For my card I made a panel of Neenah Solar white and I cut it at an angle.
I then traced a stencil from Scrapberry's (dotted pattern) with pencil and filled the dots in with colors from the inspiration photo/umbrella.

I don't have any umbrella or rain themed stamps, so I chose to use the colors and the dots as my inspiration.
I've used my Spectrum Noir markers to color the dots and then traced the stencil again with a black multiliner and erased the pencil lines.
I had trouble staying inside the lines, so I am not wondering of that piece of solar white was indeed solar white ;-), or just juicy markers...
I don't  mind, it's handmade afterall.

The sentiment is from Create a smile ( time to say thanks) and I stamped it in Versafine black onyx on the cardbase.

I mounted the dotted panel on the cardbase with foamtape for some added dimension and interest.

A few (PPP) sequins dotted around the card to finish this fun colourful card. I hope it will make the recipient smile ;-)
