I began by stamping the Studio Katia brush strokes onto a piece of grey cardstock with Distress Oxide inks (the green is a Memento Luxe color). I used the Studio Katia Stitched Notebook die to ground the rest of the elements on my card. Once die cut, I cut off the notebook holes and used just the arched shape. I blended some Distress Oxide ink onto the die cut and flicked on some water to create the droplets. I added some of the awesome rain drop embellishments from Studio Katia as well. Aren’t they fun!?!?
I stamped and heat embossed the girl and her adorable cat and colored them in with Zig watercolor markers. I cut the umbrella away from the little girl and adhered it with foam adhesive. I love the added dimension!
The sweet sentiment is from Hero Arts – I thought it was just perfect for this card – I was thinking about how even when it’s raining, there’s always a chance for a rainbow!
I hope you are able to play along with this month’s challenge, Bling It Up! It’s so fun to add a bit of sparkle & shine to a handmade card – be sure to link up your project HERE!
