I was also excited because I got to use one of my new stamps. This is Willow with Umbrella and I love her, I mean how can you not with that polk-a-dot umbrella! I colored her with my Copics and white gel pen, I then used my Glazed Dimensions to make it rain... love that! Just hope you can tell in the photo how raised the rain actually is.
Then following the sketch from the challenge I picked out a Core'dinations card stock and 6 pattern papers from the K&Company Designer Paper pad. I cut all the pieced to size and inked the edge of everything. One of the pattern pieces is a brown with a faint print that I used as the mat for the image and the sentiment, that is also from Whiff of Joy "It's raining Love and Birthday Wishes". Then I dug through my border punches to find my scallop punch to put to the left of the image, when I saw this Fiskars border punch and loved how it looked with the rain and the papers. I attached everything down and then found some Prima yellow flowers that I inked as well. And do you love the metal flowers that I used in the centers? They have a hole just large enough for a mini brad. I have saved this weeks sketch, as I think I may have to used it again, and again, I just love all the layers! Run over and see how fabulous their DT did with the sketch... all I can say is WOW!
Announcement: Make sure to run over to Papercrafts by Rach oh my I drooled on the screen when I saw her give away! I just love her cards!
Well Hubby is off today, and a "Cold Front" blew in last night. I am sure most of you would laugh as it was a brisk 56 this morning... and I had to put on my socks and warmer clothes before I went out to love on donkeys. Sorry it was cold! Remember I am in central Texas... anyway we are going to do some clean up around here today and then run some errands... Hubby and MIL need new shoes, and I think I really need to go by Micheals and see if they have the new punches in stock... I really need to. ;0)
Hope you all have a great Thursday, and get inky!
