Let's see my card!
I used a cloud stencil and a rainbow of Distress Inks to create a background on a piece of 110 lb cardstock. I masked off an inch at the bottom of the cardstock for some ground and then I started at the top with Abandoned Coral and went in rainbow order as follows - Abandoned Coral, Carved Pumpkin, Fossilized Amber, Peeled Paint, Mermaid Lagoon, Wilted Violet, and Picked Raspberry. I used a blending brush from Picket Fence studios so that I could get deeper color at the bottom of the line of clouds and lighter towards the puffy part of the clouds. For the ground / road I used some Pumice Stone.
I stamped out the double decker bus and Big Ben from the Adventures Abroad - London set from Beth Duff Designs and my character from the Kindred Stamps Perfect Nanny stamp set onto watercolor cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink and coated them with clear embossing powder. You can purchase the Perfect Nanny stamp set by following the link, however, Adventures Abroad - London from Beth Duff Designs is sold out and will not be restocked due to the closing of Beth's company. But this stamp set and all of the sets used during this collaboration will be offered in a digital bundle from Dec 8-11 on the Beth Duff Designs website! I colored each of my images with Staedtler watercolor markers and a waterbrush to blend out the color and cut out the images with my scissors.
I arranged my images on my inked background with foam tape and added a bunch of clear shimmer using my Spectrum Noir clear overlay sparkle pen! I added a line of glitter to each color change in the clouds background and all over each of my colored images. I decided to add some clear gems for even more shine! And that completes my card!
Here is the digital image that coordinates with the sets I used to make my card! There are two different giveaways for participating in this collaboration!

Then you will want to visit each blog on this hop, download the free digi (there will be 6 total), color it, add it your passport, and submit it to the album in the Kindred Stamps Fan Club and Unicorn Crafts Facebook groups to be entered into our giveaways!
