Rainy Thursday!!


This is a perfect card for a rainy day in Southwestern Ontario!!! I used my new Sunshine Designs Spring Cube which has some adorable images on it. In addition to the little raincoat there is also an umbrella, a kite and a pair of wellies in a puddle!! So cute!

I stamped the raincoat in black Stazon on Watercolour paper and used my aquapainter and SU markers to watercolour it. Obviously I'm not the best at it yet.....but like everything else, it takes practice. I would LOVE to take a class on watercolouring with markers and ink and I think the designer of these particular stamps does classes in London. I might just have to sign up for one!! I used Summer Sun for the main part of the coat and then shaded in some areas using Pumpkin Pie. The flower is Certainly Celery with Real Red in the centre. Then I used my Big Blossom and stamped it on the back of some Basic Grey Oh So Silly patterned paper and cut it out. Then I sponged around the edges of the flower with Real Red to help it stand out. The card base is Summer Sun and the background piece is a solid BG colour from the Oh So Silly collection also. I added some satin polka dotted ribbon and pop dotted the little raincoat image. Then I added a circle of Summer Sun and a Real Red SU button tied with linen thread to finish it off!!

Have a wonderful Thursday!! I have to work this afternoon and this evening, but then I'm off Friday and Saturday........yaaaaaaaay!!! AND it's payday!! Whoop, whoop!!
