IO Challenge- Sending Sunshine (Sun Image or Sunny Colors)

Greetings friends.  Is there anyone out there that could use a little extra sunshine in their life?  Well, that is the latest IO challenge theme.  You can make cards with sun images or just sunny colors.  The interpretation is up to you!

For my card today, I chose a sunshine and rainbow image that I love.  It is actually on clearance on the Impression Obsession site, so now is a great time to get it! 

I didn't want the lines of the image to be really dark and overpower the yellow of the sun, so I started with some 140lb watercolor paper and stamped my image with grey Versafine ink:

I then colored it with some zig clean color real brush markers.  Of course, I also had to add a little bit of a Wink of Stella glitter marker to the cloud for extra sparkle.

To create the rays in the background, I stamped the Sunburst Cover a Card Background onto a yellow notecard with Versamark ink and then sponged the whole thing with an orange/yellow PanPastel chalk.  Very easy.  As a finishing touch, I added my sentiment with a banner die cut.

Impression Obsession Items Used:

Card Sentiments 3167-MD
Stitched Tag (includes the banner die) DIE798-Y

This card just radiates sunshine. I love how you designed it with that image over the background.
