Come Rain or Shine- More Likely Snow:(


The challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is "Come Rain or Shine" and I am sharing this card with some of my favorite raindrops from Designs by Ryn. But here in central Wisconsin, we are expecting a major snow storm with up to a dozen inches of heavy snow. We had gotten rid of all our snow and today I saw my first robin, but Spring is going to be delayed a bit more now:(

I started this card by stamping the Designs by Ryn water droplets along with a rainy day couple and rain lines stamps by Local King Rubber Stamps on water color paper. Then I sprinkled on a couple shades of blue Brusho Coloured Crystals and spritzed with water to release the gorgeous colors. I highlighted the water droplets with a white gel pen.  I layered the completed piece on white and then onto a black card base.

I am entering this card in the March challenge at Designs by Ryn as well as the SSS Wednesday challenge.
