Dancing in the Rain


Hello Everyone! I am so honored to be a Guest Designer this week for Inky Impressions. This is Challenge #200 and the theme for the challenge this week is special lady (mother's day, girlie birthday, etc.).


 I am using Umbrella Lili and the Dancing in the Rain sentiment for my card. I printed the focal image on white card stock and colored it using Copic markers (hair- Y15, Y19; umbrella, slicker and wellies - RV25, RV55 {used the tip-to-tip technique to get middle color and blend}; umbrella handle - Y28; skin - R000, R01; lips - R21; jeans, hairband and eyes - B41, B45). After coloring, I added Ranger's Glossy Accents to the umbrella, slicker and wellies to make them shine as if they were rubber. I also used it on the little puddle at the bottom. I used Spellbinder's Labels Ten die to cut the image out. While the die was still attached to the card stock, I used soft sky and bashful blue inks to distress it, leaving a white frame around it. I layered this on a light blue card stock that was also distressed with bashful blue ink. I really liked the way the distressing came out on the colored card stock. This was then layered onto a white card stock base. I pulled the sentiment into my Silhouette software and used a cut file called 5 Clouds (design #11654) to cut a cloud around it. The cloud was distressed with bashful blue ink and then popped up with foam dots. Finally, I added some epoxy raindrops from Creative Imagination to finish off the card. I have had these epoxy stickers for a very long time, so it's awesome to finally use them.

I really hope you will join the challenge this week! I am entering this card into he following challenges:
