Into every life...

Good Morning Crafty Friends Followers and Visitors

Happy Sunday to you all!

We had a fabulous day yesterday with my granddaughters.

Well my card definitely reflects the weather we are having here in Warrington this morning!
Typical bank holiday weather!

A card today using a stencil from Clarity Stamps

Step by Step

1. 7 x 7 white square card which I have matted and layered navy blue card.
2. The next layer I painted with Fresco Blue Oyster acrylic paint, I then stamped the rain drops and once dry I brayered the images which are a Clarity Stamp stencil with Silkies Royal Satin.
3. Once this was dry I outlined the images with black Micron pen, distressed the edges and the base of the image.
4. On a piece of white card I stamped the sentiment which is a Sheena Douglass A little bit sketchy range. 
5. To finish off I added glossy accents to the raindrops.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Sister Act Card Challenge #107 - Anything Goes
Brown Sugar #147 - Favourite Colour Combo (Brown and Blue)

  14. We are also very much having rain, for several weeks now. It's important thought as we have been in drought, severe drought. the lake we use for water of our 1.5 million person city is at 47% So this rain is wonderful, but will also cause flooding and problems in local places who can not handle it. If only we could just move all the rain straight to our lakes. Hugs. Your card is lovely for the occasion.
