Sunshine on a Rainy Day

Hi there! Hope you are having a great weekend. ‘Happy Mother’s Day’ to all the awesome Mums out there.. hope you get some YOU TIME today!

We have another fantastic card to inspire you here on the blog today.

Becca Cruger has been getting inky with our rain lady…

March in North Dakota usually means blustery snow and cold. But this week, right before we got walloped by a blizzard, there was a thunderstorm and tons of rain!

In honor of our rainstorm, I busted out the Sparkle in the Rain stamp set by Visible Image and let my inner optimist shine with this card design.

I began by embossing the umbrella girl in black and then scribbled over her with shades of yellow gelatos.

I blended the gelatos with my fingers and then used a damp paper towel to wipe off the excess gelato from the embossed image.

I masked over my image and most of the yellow portions of my card and then stamped some raindrops using blue Distress Inks.

I thought the card paired perfectly with this big ol’ happy sentiment from the Express Yourself set.

I embossed it on black paper and then painted in the sunshine with a bit of yellow Distress Oxides, followed by a healthy does of Spectrum Noir sparkle markers – because who doesn’t love all things GLITTER!?

A little background of patterned paper and viola! My design was complete!

Thanks for popping by my friends, and be sure to head over to the Visible Image blog homepage to check out some awesome inspiration!

Such a fabulous card Becca! Love it! Thank you  ♡
