Rainy Day Smiles


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Mary Angel – Q020 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Rainy Rainy Day – H048 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. We are in for a lot of rain in the next little while here, but Mary is well prepared for it with her adorable little boots and is ready to play in the puddles. Did you love playing in the puddles with your rain boots when you were little too?

To make my card this week, I started off with a card base of 6″ x 6″. I used Forever in Time – Splish Splash paper for the background as I thought it went so well with this image. The background paper is double-sided and I loved how well it went together to frame the image and sentiment. I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and then coloured the image in with Copic Markers. Once it was coloured in, I fussy cut around it and used B01 to fill in all of the white space as it matched the background paper so well. For the sentiment, I thought it would be cute to turn it into an umbrella as well. To do this, I stamped the sentiment and then drew an umbrella shape around it. I used a scrap piece of copic paper and drew the handle for it and then coloured it and cut it out as well. To finish off the card, I popped up the image and the sentiment with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and added some Ranger Inkssentials – Glossy Accents onto the water and droplets, Gelly Roll Stardust – Clear to the wings, Mary’s umbrella and pockets on the raincoat. Unfortunately, the glitter isn’t showing up in the picture.
