*AAA #148*

Welcome to the latest clean and simple challenge for AAA Cards.  For the next two weeks, the challenge is a sketch with the optional twist of animals.
Here's the sketch we are playing with.... you are welcome to flip the sketch in any direction.  Please remember to keep as much clean space as you can on your card... areas without embossing or embellishment or stamping.
Our sponsor for this challenge is Crafty Scrappers...

I had fun playing with a rainbow for my card.  I could have very easily made this a one layer card but I decided that I wanted to add a pop of black to the card with a thin border.

To colour the unicorn, I used a Tombow Blender Pen to pick up the colours from the lids of the Catherine Pooler inks.  I also used a paintbrush, a little water and the Lawn Fawn Liquid Stardust to add some great shimmer to the colourful parts of the unicorn.
