Spring Showers

Hey there.  It’s been a pretty wet Spring here and today is no different.  But where there’s showers, a rainbow is to follow, right? 😉  At least that is what my Spring Showers card is based upon. 😂  Love incorporating rainbow colours in my Spring theme cards.

A Wonky Stitched Rectangle was die cut from smooth Bristol paper.  Alice was stamped with Archival black ink.  She was masked, then the raindrops were stamped next.  DIstress inks were used to colour the ground in rainbow colour.

Alice and the umbrella were watercoloured with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and a watercolour brush.  I think this may be the first time I used the black Zig marker.

The sentiment was black heat embossed.  The panel was adhered to a top folding white card base.  Clear shimner was added to the umbrella and raindrops to give them a glistening look.  To finish, a few Clear Rain Drops were added.

Thank you for dropping by.
