Magical Day for JAI #400

Happy Friday everyone and welcome! This week the weather has definitely had a touch of Autumn about it and the mornings are noticeably darker. I'm guessing the end of Daylight Savings can't be too far away now.

It's time for a new challenge at Just Add Ink and yes, its our 400th Challenge!! To celebrate this fabulous milestone, we have some prizes and Guest Designer Spots to give away so make sure you pop on over to the challenge blog to check out the details and see all the beautiful creations our wonderful team have created to inspire you. I feel very privileged to have been part of this team of very lovely ladies since around #270. It doesn't feel that long ago yet at the same time, I am blessed with friends that feel like they have been there forever :-)  The challenge this week is to use this fun and colourful Inspiration Photo suggested by Kim and we'd love you to join us!

I was inspired by the speckles on the eggs and how closely packed the eggs are to create a rainbow scene birthday card for one of my Niece's whose birthday is coming up soon. This is how it lies flat to fit in a (Australian) standard C6 envelope.
To create the rainbow, I coloured the shapes with Zig markers on water color paper and flicked water over the colour panels and dabbed with a paper towel to get the splotchy look. Then I used the new Rainbow Builder Framelits to cut them out along with the cloud layers. 

Yes, it's a Twisted Easel card for something a bit special!

Behind the rainbow is a water coloured sky using ink pads and a few flicks of water and Wink of Stella. The Unicorn's mane and tail were coloured with Zigs but his body is simply Wink of Stella and it has a soft sparkle in real life.

To create the cloud on the base card, I used one of the long cloud - line dies and turned it around to go through the Big Shot a few times and enclose the greeting. A fussy cut little sparkly silver and pink unicorn from the co-ordinating Specialty DSP and this card is ready to go in the post.
