The Paper Players #285 "Rain or Shine"

Hello fellow cardmakers, Today I am playing along with The Paper Players on Challenge #285 "Rain or Shine.  I created this colorful card using the stamp set "Spectrum" by Paper Smooches. I stamped the unicorn on PTI Stampers Select White cardstock using Memento Desert Sand then masked it and stamped the rainbow also using Memento Desert Sand. Then I masked the rainbow and stamped the sun using Hero Arts Butter Bar. I ink-blended Butter Bar around the sun and Hero Arts Pool around the unicorn and rainbow.

I used Copic markers in shades of warm gray to color the unicorn and used Copic Spica Atyou Glitter pens to color in the rainbow and hair. The clouds of the rainbow are colored in shades of cool gray. A bit of R20 was used to color in the unicorns ear. I stamped the coordinating clouds from the set on PTI Vellum in Brilliance Starlite Silver and clear embossed them with Hero Arts clear embossing powder. The sentiment was stamped using Versamark Onyx Black. I adhered the clouds using a glue pen just around the rim under the embossed edge. The panel was trimmed and popped up using a sheet of craft foam and placed on some patterned paper from the Fancy Pants pattern paper pack "Beloved".  The card base is standard A2 size using PTI Stampers Select White. The list of supplies is below.
