A Little Rain Must Fall

Hi there crafty people, and welcome to the weekend!  After the snowy week we’ve had, I would welcome some rain to melt the snow – to wash away some of the salts that cover the roads and give everything a hazy coating.  But with my card today, I’m thinking of more of the metaphoric type of rain.  Those cloudy days that suck our energy; that zap our bliss; that bring us down. 

If we didn’t have those rainy days, how would we ever appreciate the sunshine that illuminate the joy of life; and the blessing we are given?


Today’s Waltzingmouse Stamps Sketch Challenge Blog is packed full of inspiration to get your creativity moving!  So let’s get to it.


Using  WMS’s Asian Gardens and Asian Garden Additions I created my card based on the sketch that was provided to us. 

I painted a frame from Tattered Angels using acrylic paint and gave it a coating of Glossy Accents for dimension.  I stamped my sentiment onto a piece of patterned paper from the Le Chateau Collection by Kaiser Craft.


Now it’s your turn.  I’m excited to see your very own interpretation of the sketch this week.  You aren’t limited to just cards; if you are inclined to use the sketch for a scrapbook page or 3D project – have at it.  You have until next Thursday, 11:59 Eastern time to upload your project and leave the link on the Waltzingmouse Stamps Challenge Blog. Using Waltzingmouse Stamp images are not required to play along, although we are always happy to see WMS images.

Thanks for looking in today.  I hope that the rain stays away from you and that you have nothing but sunshine and a happy day! ~ hugs to you all!

This is gorgeous Lynn, I love the frame and the glossy effect you have done with it, I have this set, and i'm never too sure how to use the sentiment, but you have done a fabulous job.

Love your work, Lynn! Glossy accents really adds 'that little bit extra' to your projects. I use it a lot. :D
