Rain or Shine

I just love cards that have a bit of a scene going on.

I saw a card with a similar layout in one of my papercrafting magazines and decided to put my spin on it.

The papers are from the Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm 6 by 6 pad and the Simple Stories Vintage Bliss 6 by 6 pad.

I used the stamp set Heart-2-Heart # 6 from Papertrey Ink for the clouds and sun.  I used Summer Sun and Bashful Blue inks from Stampin' Up.

The stamp set Rain Boots from SP & Company provided the boots and the sentiment.  The boots were stamped with Regal Rose.  I used my Copics to color over the patterned paper. It toned down the effect of the pattern a little bit and gave them a tiny bit of the illusion of depth.

The grass was made using a Martha Stewart punch.  After I punched it out I inked it with Weathered Wood distress ink.  The sentiment was stamped onto the punched grass with Versamark ink and then I used some Stampendous embossing powder.

The butterfly is an EK success sticker and I used a white Gelly Roll pen to create the line behind it.

I used a Copic Multiliner to create tiny dots all around the gray layer of the card.

Thanks for visiting!
