Cheer Up

Hello crafty friends,

I am back from my Alaska trip for couple days now. I am slowly but surely getting back to my daily routine. Today I pulled one of my recent purchase stamps and dies from Pretty Pink Posh and started to play around with all colors I like. I found all colorful images I stamped are very pretty and useful for using along or being a scene building tool.

To make this card, I first stamped Clouds and Umbrella images from Pretty Pink Posh Rainy Days Stamp set and Rainy Days Additions Stamp set and cut them with coordinating dies. For ink colors, I used Altenew dye ink in Sea Breeze, Turquoise, Pink Diamond and Limstone. I also stamped and copic colored images from Pretty Pink Posh Birthday Friends Stamp set.

To make the background, I applied Daniel Smith watercolor paint in Cobalt Teal Blue and Cerulean Blue mixture onto a piece of Tim Holtz Distress watercolor paper, then splattered the paint in higher concentration by tapping the watercolor brush handle, and set aside to dry.

I die cut the frame using Pretty Pink Posh Scallop Frames Dies in smaller size out of a piece of Neenah Solar white 80lbs cardstock. I added the Foam tape underneath the frame and attached the frame on the top of background panel.

I arranged prepared images onto my background using Multi Medium Matte and Foam tapes, and I stamped the sentiment from Rain Days Additions Stamp set using Memento ink in Tuxedo Black. For embellishments, I stamped some hearts using Altenew dye ink in Ruby Red and added Pretty Pink Posh 4mm Clear droplets for rain effects.

I hope you like this card. I am in process of using these clouds and umbrella images for more cards. I will see you soon with more inspirations! Have a good day!
