Better Days to come card

Spring showers new H2O

Hi Crazy4Challenges fans!  I hope everyone is staying healthy during this Covid 19 thing!  I don’t know about you, but being forced to stay home in my craft room….well,  I’ve had worse things happen.  But then again, none of my loved ones has been infected.  So my   prayers go out to those of you who have been more personally affected.  It’s interesting that today’s challenge is to put rain or a rainbow on your card this week.  We’ve had a good amount of rain in CA this week!

The Steps:

Step 1:  I stenciled the rain drops on a piece of white cardstock with blue ink.  Next I cut out a square from this stenciled white cardstock using a nested square die set.

Step 2:  Using a Pink and Main stamp called “Puddles”, I stamped the little girl out twice  Once on white card stock and again on yellow cardstock with a tiny white heart print on it.

Step 3:  I colored the stamped image on white cardstock with Copic Markers and added clear lacquer to the puddle area.  Then I “fussy cut” out the Umbrella and Hat out from the stamped yellow cardstock and glued it onto the Copic colored image.  Then I “fussy cut” out the entire image after the lacquer was dry.

Step 4:  I cut out two grass pieces. cloud and the little yellow flowers from an older couple of Karen Burniston die sets called “The All Season Tree” and “The Garden Bench”.

Step 5:  I cut a scalloped square mat for the finished scene piece from light blue cardstock from a nested set by Elizabeth Craft Designs.

Step 6:  I created the sentiment on my computer and cut it out with a nest fishtail die set.

Step 7:  Create a base card by scoring an 8.5″ x11″ pc. of white cardstock and folding over for a tent fold card.  Trim down to 5″ x 5″.  Now adhere the finished little rain scene to the base card.

That’s It!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
