This is amazing. At first I thought you had put it in the wrong folder becauuse it was a painting. And then I zoomed in and was like 'holy crap'.

P.S. My husband says, "Rainbow Bright is awesome."

Rainbow Brite is the perfect toon for straws!  The colours are awesome as is the detail! I love it!

After checking out Regretsy I'm pretty sure I could sell my stuff on Etsy.

thanks guys! Smiley

I LOVE Rainbow Brite and she was the first thing I thought of when I saw the challenge and I was lucky to find these straws at a craft store. It is not as easy to find different colored drinking straws. I went to a few party stores and was excited when I saw that they had silverware, napkins, plates and cups sectioned by color but they did not have drinking straws. The fun part was picking out the picture, I went with this one since she is hanging in my craft room. At first I thought I was a little ambitious and that it wasn't going to turn out how I pictured it but thankfully I made it work.
