It DID rain!

Last night and again today but not that much - enough to be annoying for the washing! However, I have another rain inspired card to show you.  Remember that image I used last time - from Annabelle Stamps? I had stamped it and coloured it three different ways - Copic, Prisma and Derwent Watercolour pencils - and this one is the Prisma one:


This card was made for my DIL's birthday which is today - Happy Birthday Bea!

I have used Stickles to try and get a water splatter effect here and it worked on the umbrella but not necessarily on her hair! Too thick there I think. In this one I used the negative from the umbrella die and added a handle.  The sentiment is from LOTV stamped with SU inks and aged with Distress ink. 


Some green ribbon, and the whole mounted on some shimmery card which had been put through the embossing folder and mounted on SU Glorious Green card. That is also used for the base card, and the bp used is from Basic Grey Nostalgia. Three Annabelle sprinkles added extra bling.


All glittered up!


The inside of the card. That sentiment is from Stamp-It.

I will enter this for the following challenges:
Meljens Designs; Happy Birthday
Pixie Dust Studio: weather theme (so suitable for this!)
Crafty Creations: Free for All!
