I'm popping in today to share a fun card. Sometimes I get my best ideas as I'm falling asleep at night and this was one of them!
I did a quick watercolor wash with some Smoky Slate ink (131179). I opened my embossing paste (141979) and it had dried out some. Tip: If that happens to you, just add a few drops of water, let it sit for a few minutes then stir. Add a few more drops of water at a time until it gets back to the consistency it's supposed to be.
Anyway, I just decided to use it dry because I knew I would get awesome texture for my clouds which I made using the cloud stencil (144103). And I was right! See?
Before the clouds completely dried, I sprinkled some silver stampin' glitter (133756) on them to give them a little sparkle. Then I stamped the raindrops and added some clear raindrop epoxy shapes (145632).
I love how bright the umbrella looks agains the gray sky. Just how I pictured it in my head. I used my Stampin' Blends (147475), of course ;), to color the umbrella. The sentiment goes perfectly with that happy umbrella.
And that's it! I hope you enjoyed seeing this card as much as I did making it!
I would love it if you would visit my online store. If you use the March Hostess Code at the top of my blog and place at least a $30 order, I'll send you a gift as my way of saying thank you!
Thanks for visiting me today. Make it a great and crafty day!
