Rain, Rain, Go Away!!

With all the rain we have been having lately and with more forecast I thought this would be quite an appropriate card to load up today!!  For those of you who visit me regularly you will probably already recognise both the stamps and the paper!!

The stamps are of course by Denami Design and the paper is called Denim Paisley by Creative Imaginations and is available from Stamp Addicts.

I began by stamping the Large Open Umbrella using Brilliance Starlite Black and coloured them using my Polycolor Pencils and a Splender Pencil, omitting the handle.  For this I coloured with my Clear Sakura Stardust pen and then traced over the umbrella lines with my Silver Sakura Stardust pen.  I next lightly added some Crystal glitter glue over the top which you may see clearer in the second image.

The wording was stamped with Brilliance Graphite Black as I really wanted this to stand out, then for the background I used the Large Dot Swirls, Versamark and Iridescent Sparkle embossing powder.  All of which can be purchased from Stamp Addicts.

I hope that the weather is treating you more kindly wherever you are!!

Hello Kay
Yes, I recognise the stamp but not the paper. Think the card is great for someone who is a little poorly.
Am disliking the rain & hating the way the weather has turned so bitterly cold, not at all spring like although we do have snowdrops, hyacinths, narcissi, daffodils & tulips in bloom in our garden but they won't last very long if this weather keeps up.
Ken joins me in sending Easter greetings & blessings to you.
Regards. a.k.a., Rita x
