Rainy Day

My Favorite Things has a new contest on their blog. My take on it is to think outside my comfort zone for card creations.

My card began by coating a piece of Smooth White cardstock with Gesso. I sponged some die based ink on for the background. Then I pulled out some background stamps, stencils and other stamps and went to work. Since the paper was coated, I was not limited to only one type of ink. I used a little darker and brighter inks for this layer. When it was dry, I added some silver and gold touches. After seeing how intense the raindrops appeared, I pulled out the Pure Innocence stamp, paper pieced her umbrella and colored her with Copic markers.  I trimmed the background piece with a frame from Blueprints 20, mounted it on a piece of Blueberry cardstock cut from another frame from Blueprints 20 and mounted this on my card base. I popped the little girl up with foam tape, added a rhinestone on top of her umbrella and gave her boots some shine with glossy accents and she is ready to steal your heart!


  1. Adorable card! Like your combination of stamping and nice coloring. Good luck in the MFT contest. :)

  2. Love all the pastels - so very pretty!
