Rain Day

Hi everyone! Well I have made this card for a challenge over on Outlawz - rain day - and the sun is blasting down here today! I must have chased all the rain away with my card!
The background is done with Brusho paints - I'm a bit obsessed with these at the moment! I know it looks blue but I had used the black - when you sprinkle this onto the card & spritz it there are some fab colours, I 'smooshed' across this with a very wet brush, then dabbed with kitchen roll to hive a softer look. I die cut the shape I wanted for my card.
Stamped the umbrella onto white card & coloured using DI & cut out. Stamped the raindrops onto the background being careful where I wanted to place my umbrella.
I had some card that I had been colouring with Brusho stripes in rainbow colours. Stamped the sentiment onto this & die cut.
Arranged the image & sentiment onto my raindrop background. Added some sticles over the raindrops.
For the base card I had some watercolour papesr that I had been experimenting on with inks & stencils.
I found one that I thought complimented my image & matted my image layer onto it, then adhered this onto my card.
Hope you like it - I had fun making it.
Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Lovely card, Bev! I especially admire your raindrops believe it or not. It is hard to get just the right rain affect without ruining the whole thing. You have executed the whole card brilliantly.
