March in North Dakota usually means blustery snow and cold. But this week, right before we got walloped by a blizzard, there was a thunderstorm and tons of rain! Mother nature acted a little bipolar.
In honor of our rainstorm, I busted out the Sparkle in the Rain stamp set by Visible Image and let my inner optimist shine with this card design.
I began by embossing the umbrella girl in black and then scribbled over her with shades of yellow gelatos.
I blended the gelatos with my fingers and then used a damp paper towel to wipe off the excess gelato from the embossed image.
I masked over my image and most of the yellow portions of my card and then stamped some raindrops using blue Distress Inks.
I thought the card paired perfectly with this big ol' happy sentiment from the Express Yourself set.
I embossed it on black paper and then painted in the sunshine with a bit of yellow Distress Oxides, followed by a healthy does of Spectrum Noir sparkle markers - because who doesn't love all things GLITTER!?
A little background of patterned paper and viola! My design was complete!
I'm going to play along in a few challenges:
Just Add Ink - Just Add Water
Aud Sentiments - Anything Goes plus a sentiment
TIME OUT Challenges - Bold (I used lots of bold colors)
Thanks for popping by, my friends and be sure to head over to the Visible Image blog to check out some awesome inspiration!
