Umbrellas and rain drops

 

Hello again. Here is a card which appears a little darker than my usual, but it is actually quite sparkly if you turn it a little. I’ve tried to capture the effect, but it does look better in ‘real life’.

I used a Clearly Besotted stamp set, and heat embossed onto black card with silver detail embossing powder. I then used my Polychromos to colour the images in, using 2-3 reds and 2-3 yellows. The black rain drops are from the matching dies for the stamp set, which are cut from Stampin Up black glimmer card, and individually stuck down.

I heat embossed the sentiments from the same stamp set, and added the whole thing to a white base card.

To try and get the glimmer from the rain drops, I had to prop the card against one of my perfume bottle – only because it had a nice image on the lid. Can you tell which perfume it is?

Hello everyone. I have gone with glimmer for this card, as you can see. I don’t usually do anything card-wise for Valentines day, but the current challenges I am entering made it actually quite hard to stay away form this theme….

I used a 6 inch square white card base, and added hearts from a Sue Wilson set I bought last year. This set of dies – Fluttering Heart fillable collection – has nesting layers which were ideal for the sketch challenge.

I then turned to my Stampin Up glimmer card, and sued the white and pink for the hearts, and plain white card for the smaller detailed heart.

The sentiment if from Altenew ‘Hello Sunshine’, which is still sat on my table from my card the other day, and die cut with a small border die from a Catherine Pooler die set.
