Coloring Skies at Make it Colorful!

Hi there everyone! I just love the way this card came out. The challenge at Make it Colorful this week is Coloring Skies. I wanted a blue-ish purply sky to give the impression of it was a dark and gloomy day and it's clearing out and the rainbow is shinning! Did I accomplish that look? I LOVE the way it came out. I used Copics and I used BV00, V000, B41, B000 and BG0000 all in the sky. Then I used my Stardust Stickles for the shine. This is such a beautiful background from Make it Crafty it's called Rainbow Meadow. I used my Mini Magnolia Lion, I LOVE him!!!  I will be totally honest I had to to go look up lions online to get his color right. I think it's just DARLING!!! I  know what you are all thinking.. "WOW I can't believe she didn't put flowers" I can't believe it either. I didn't want to cover up the paper I think it's PERFECT and I didn't want to cover the image that took me hours to color! The little touch of Flowersoft was just enough, I think.

Anywho.. Have a great weekend. I'm going to be at my Great-Grandmother's 92nd Birthday Party! :)

A beautiful card Mindy. Your coloring is outstanding. The lion is gorgeous. I love the flowersoft at the bottom of your picture. The sky looks perfect and I see that every cloud has a silver lining. The rainbow looks lovely with the glitter too.
I hope you had a nice time with your great grandmother. I just had a lovely time with my grand daughter from New Zealand.
