Make a Wish in the Clouds card

Today's card is a simple sky scene featuring Lawn Fawn's "Critters Ever After" set. I made the masks by hand-drawing and cutting out two clouds on cardstock and using removable adhesive to stick them onto my panel. I used Distress Inks to create a blue sky, and after I removed the masks, I used a Memento marker and silver gel pen to give the clouds some shading and silver lining.

I echoed the gold/yellow and silver/gray while coloring the unicorn and gryphon. For the unicorn, I used watercolor pencils, and for the gryphon, I watercolored using Distress Inks. I added touches of silver with a gel pen, and gave the gryphon a hand-drawn bow, also in silver.

I finished off the card by stamping the sentiment (from the same stamp set as the images), hole-punching either side of it, and stringing twine across. I punched out the sun from a sheet of yellow polka-dotted patterned paper from My Mind's Eye, and I added touches of Wild Honey Distress Ink to its edges. I popped up this panel using foam adhesive onto a cut and scored piece of silver cardstock.
