Raindrops Keep Falling!
Onto the card - this is one that I did for Stevenage using the latest release of Denami Design stamps. I really do like this Mimi stamp and it is just right to use for the next coming month as April is synonymous with April Showers! I just wish that I could look as stylish in my wellies as Mimi does!
For this card I stamped Mimi In The Rain with Starlite Black Brilliance and coloured her using the Polycolor pencils and a Splender pencil which 'polishes' the pencils and gets rid of any pencil lines as well as blending the colours. Next I stamped the Raindrops using the same inkpad and coloured the drops using a Clear Sakura Stardust pen and then lightly stamped a couple of Large Dot Swirls in a couple of the blank areas - again using the Starlite Black Brilliance. The Small Umbrella was stamped three times and coloured in the same way and then cut out and added as embellishments to the card. The Heard You're Under The Weather wording I stamped in Graphite Black Brilliance as I wanted this to stand out more and then gently coloured around the panel using the Polycolor pencils.
The actual card I stamped and embossed using the Decorative Flourish and a Versamark inkpad and crystal embossing powder so that it would gently twinkle when the light catches it. The paper is by Creative Imaginations and is called Denim Paisley. I still felt that the background needed something else so I stamped the Large Dot Swirl in the bottom right corner using the Starlite Black Brilliance, cleaned it and stamped and embossed it into the top left corner using Versamark and Detail White embossing powder. After that it just needed a few little embellishments with some brads and gems and a doodle with a fine black pen.
I hope you like it!!
