Dancing in the rain

Over at the Outlawz Twisted Thursday our optional challenge  twist this week is to make something with the.theme of water.
Our sponsor for July is Sami Stamps, and I used an image you can find over in the Sami Stamps store.

I colored the image using Promarkers and I used a white gel pen to make the flowers on her dress. There's a huge amount of glossy accent on the umbrella, I fussy cut the image and added foam under the umbrella's center to give it a bit of dimension, something you can't see in this photo but it looks quite neat IRL. 

The background is made using Distress Ink and a Tim Holtz stencil. I used another stencil with raindtrops, drew white lines and added glossy accent.
The sentiment is heat embossed with aged gold embossing powder, the stamp is from Kaisercraft.

This card is also for these challenges:
Sami Stamps - #27 Anything Goes 
Come and Get It - Combine 2 images
Sweet Stampin - No designer paper
Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge - #235 Stencils & Masks
Dream Valley Challenges - Embossing, wet or dry

A perfect scene for this message, Pia!!! And I think that the sentiment is a very important thing to remember always... You have made a wonderful card, the background is stunning with the double stencil and the raindrops look as true water!! The umbrella has a lovely 3D feel, I see it! Love the colours and the dramatic gold embossed sentiment!
So... let's dance! :D

AMAZING card....simply amazing. I love that sentiment stamp, it is over the top fabulous and I just love how you used it too. Fabulous card Pia.

MaryH said...

Lots of lovely details on this pretty card. The rays are great with the dimensional 'brolly, and what a good idea to add the foam in the center of the umbrella. The white gel flowers created so much interest on her dress & the subtle raindrops stenciling was so effective. And an absolute perfect sentiment for this card, and one we all need to remember! TFS & Hugs
