So, Yesterday Kimmie mentioned on her blog about a new MFT challenge that will happen every Monday featuring a different Who's That Girl! stamp. I just love all the MFT sets and have been collecting them but I don't use them that much and really, I should. So, this challenge is just the motivation or "big kick in the buttocks" that I needed to pull out my WTG sets and use more than just the sentiments.
This weeks challenge is to use Rain or Shine and to BLING it up, so that is exactly what I did!!! (sidebar....if you are wondering what that little black thing is in the top right hand corner of the card...I think it is a bug hitching a ride on my card when I took my pics outside in the garden, lol)
I had some left over Daisey Buckets pp from another project and I thought it would be perfect for this card. The card base is 6X6 and cut from a sheet of white Bazzill Basics cardstock. I stamped the main image on Georgia pacific paper with Archival Brilliance Black Graphite ink and coloured it in with my copics and paper pieced the WTG's rain coat and her cute doggie's rain coat too. I tried a new tip I picked up from Jacqui called water washing with a Sakura Stardust pen on the little puddle of water. I went around the edge of the puddle with the stardust pen and then I took a water brush and spread the glitter all around. Now even the puddle has a little bling goin' on. I used 3 different colours of Bazzill Bling cardstock and cut the scalloped mat out on my QK Silhouette using a QK digital download. I added some bling to her umbrella and around the sentiment which I printed on my computer using the font Wendy Medium. Now, if you are thinking that sentiment sound awefully familiar it's cuz it is a line from Rihanna's song "Umbrella"!!!! I just love using song lyrics as sentiments on my cards and I thought this would be perfect. So, then I had a light bulb moment but not sure if it translates as well as I had hoped. I cut several QK 2X2 musical notes out of some light blue Bazzill bling cardstock. They are suppose to be musical rain drops...not sure if it works. What do ya think?
Thanks for stopping by and having a wee look-see!!!
