Rainy Day Sparkle – Visible Image

Hi there! We are sharing some more awesome inspiration by Elina today.


As we head into winter we expect lots of rainy days! So keep this sentiment in mind…

The backgrounds of these cards were first inked with Distress inks and the patterns were added with plain water: On the larger card I let water just drip down creating light vertical lines. Once dry I added more water on the bottom of the card, and splashed some drops on the upper part of the background.



On the smaller ATC card I first inked the background, and placed a stencil with vertical dot lines on the cardstock. I misted the stencil with water, pressed dry with a paper towel, and removed the stencil. Creating fun patterns on your project background could not be easier!

On the larger card I stamped and fussy cut the quote text, but for an ATC sized card the text was too big. I used the same lovely quote, but wrote it with tiny rub-on letters. I have bought the letter set from craft flea market and I love it! The set is years old, but the rub-ons still work well. Originally the set was needed for correcting machine writer typing errors- a little piece of history, isn’t it!




On the ATC card I stamped the image with Archival ink. For the larger card I used black embossing powder that had a hint of sparkle in it.


The ‘Sparkle’ word on the larger card was heat embossed twice; first using black powder and then a second time with a hint of glitter powder.


The stamps are from Visible Image: ‘Sparkle In The Rain’ and ‘Smile Sparkle Shine’. Love them!
