Chocolate Baroque: A Little Summer Rain

Good morning, crafty cohorts. We're well into summer and so far the weather has been just fine. For a couple of weeks now the weather man has been threatening buckets of rain but as always, he's consistently (and persistently) wrong. Still, a little summer rain may not be such a bad idea!

Here's a card inspired by my meteorological musings and a couple of stamps from the Seasonal Fragments A4 sheet by Chocolate Baroque.

I started by heat embossing the water droplets with WOW Bright White EP, followed by blending Tim Holtz Distress Inks to create the background. For the sky: Chipped Sapphire, Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass. For the ground: Bundled Sage, Crushed Olive and Scattered Straw. Next came the sentiment from Loving Sentiments A5 sheet, stamped with VersaFine Deep Lagoon. I added blobs of Ranger Glossy Accents on the rain drops for some dimension.

To fill the bottom half of the card, I stamped the little flowers from  Seasonal Fragments with VersaFine Crimson Red and coloured it with Faber-Castell Polychromos. I added the flower to hide a smudge. (Not ink but half eaten Kit-Kat. Urgh! Hate it when that happens! Such a waste of good chocolate!)  Final touch: a few tiny pink bling on the flowers.

  10. Oh I did that with chocolate also-plop! right on the card. I still used my finger to get the last morsel but I had to cover it up as well.
