Raindrop Card

So many inspiring challenges, so little time! I wish I could make cards for them all...

This weekend I managed to make this one for the current CAS Mix Up Challenge (one of my famous last minute entries...) We are supposed to use liquid colors and I used a blue spray mist from Prima Flowers to spritz through a raindrop stencil. Once it was dry I positioned the stencil back on top of the raindrops and covered them with Gloss Heavy Gel that I use instead of Clear Embossing Paste (learned that from Loll). After it dried I sponged some Distress Inks over it and splattered it with water. The umbrella top is cut from a snippet made of glossy cardstock and alcohol inks.






Stamp: Art Impressions (sentiment) 
Dies: Memory Box (umbrella), SSS (fish tail)
Other: Stencil (SSS)

Great job getting two forms of liquid colours in there with the spray and the snippet that used AIs. Love the way you did the raindrop panel! Thanks for joining us at CAS Mix Up!

What a wonderful raindrop panel, Suzanne! I love the combination of glossy big drops and the more subtle splattered drops! A gorgeous umbrella too! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at CAS Mix Up!

DOn't we ALL learn such a lot from our Loll! I've never used this particular type of gel, so you can bet I'll be on the hunt for it. Your raindrops are very dimensional, look quite 'wet' drizzling on this fab umbrella. Also like how nice the vellum supports the raindrops too. The vellum and blue look so pretty with the kraft. A lovely color & texture combo as well as great design layout! Love it! Sentiment is wonderful and perfect with this design too. TFS

Schöne Farben hat dein Regenschirm und die Karte gefällt mir auch sehr gut. So einen könnte ich momentan auch gebrauchen! Schreckliches Wetter hier, und über's Wochenende ist noch dazu starker Sturm angesagt! - Hoffe dass wir heil durchkommen.
