Can I just say I LOVE this card?! I was inspired by this beautiful card and some new stamps I had to have from a new stamp company I just discovered. The water drops on this card is a gorgeous stamp from a company in Canada called Designs by Ryn. She has a whole sheet of different water drops in unmounted rubber and also individual stamps on cushion.In addition to the unique water drops stamps, there are many other artistic and beautiful stamps. Of course I wanted many many of her other stamps too, and will be ordering again soon.
I also discovered a new website called Live Love Cards where new tutorial videos and cards are posted often and there is a whole library of great ideas available for only $2.50 per month. I have not had time to totally explore all the videos, but for less than the cost of a cup of coffee per month, I have joined and recommend you check it out. The challenge this month at Live Love Cards is rainbows and when I saw that, I knew I had to make a card with rainbow colors in the water drops and the background. I stamped the raindrops on a white strip and colored them in the ROYGBIV colors using watercolor pencils. The background was created with the same colors in order using Brusho Crystal Colours sprinkled on watercolor paper and spritzed with water. I printed the sentiment on vellum and attached with glue dots covered up with yellow candy dots. I added some white enamel accents to the dots on the water drops which really makes them pop.
I am entering this card in the April challenge at Designs by Ryn, the April Rainbow challenge at Live Love Cards and the Make Your Own Background at Simon Says Stamp.
