Weather Together with lots of texture


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!

Rebecca :)
