Emily Raindrops

Good Evening Crafty Friends and Followers

Well the weekend has officially started in our house, hubby has just cycled home in the snow which started just as he left work and it is sticking!  The sky looks really heavy and I think we will have another covering.  Tiggy went out and came back in via my craft room window.  Lol she isn't soft she knows I work up here so comes and lets me know that it is time for me to let her back in.

Now you all know that I love Heather Valentin's digi's and I am on her design team over at Lacy Sunshine.  She has her own shop and is selling her retiring digi's for just $1, yes you have read it right!  Today's card I have used Emily Rainy Day.  I just adore this digi and have used it quite a few times this is also being retired and is $1.


Recipe

A5 scalloped white base card
First layer is from Docrafts Papermania Capsule Collection Spots and Stripes.
Before matting this layer onto the base of the card I have cut out using Spellbinder Ribbon Buckle on white pearlescent card and threaded lilac ribbon through and attached.
Second layer is Core'dinations in deep purples which has been cut out using Spellbinder Romantic Rectangles.
I printed Emily off onto Stampography card and then cut out using Spellbinder Timeless Rectangle.  I then coloured the image using Copic Ciao Pens.  Using Spica glitter pens I have highlighted the rain drops, spots on the umbrella, dress, coat and wellies.  I then used PanPastels Violet tint to the edges.
To finish off I have attached a Happy Birthday sentiment which has also been distressed with Violet Tint.  I then added some dark grey pearl gems.


Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx
