Under The Weather

Well what can I say, we were asked to make get well cards for the Penny Black Blog; here, and I needed no further inspiration than the rain that seemed to pour from the skies endlessly over the week...enough to make anyone feel rotten! I am also entering this card in the Lily Pad rainy day challenge here.

So I used Penny Black's 'Get Well Soon' 4169Kstamp, and inked up the elements using the new Tim Holtz distress marker pens.


I then cut out the image using a Spellbinders square die and stamped a second umbrella to add a little dimension to the card. This was then mounted onto 'Summer Sun' 17-003 mix and match cardstock.  The card blank was created using 'Fuchsia Fantasies' 13-003 and stamped with 'Pointille' 3860J using Tim Holtz Seedless Preserves distress ink.  Dots were added to the umbrella and stickles to the droplets of rain to finish off.

Tomorrow I will be sharing a very British card.

Hugs Cathy

This is just such fun - I love the humour & for those who live in Britain it's so apt!
Love the touch of dimension with the umbrella plus the elegance & class you combined in such a humorous creation.
