Rainy Day Cards
Card 1 - 3.5x5"
Stamp the umbrella image on an Ivory panel with black ink and add color with watercolor pencils. Blend with a water brush. Stamp the sentiment. At some point, a smudge will appear on the pristine Ivory panel, and you'll be inspired to disguise it with a watercolor splatter.
Card 2 - 4.25x4.25"
Stamp the duck image and enhance with blended watercolors. Use a soft blue or gray to add a horizon to the image and finish with a stamped sentiment. Mat the image generously and round the corners of each layer with the 1/2" radius on a Corner Chomper.
Card 3 - 4.25x5.5"
Stamp and color the rubber ducky image in the same fashion and swap out the sentiment. I used a stamping platform to achieve a nice, bold image.
Card 4 - 5.5x4.25"
Stamp and watercolor the adorable paper boat image and add the sentiment. Add perforated dots to the outside perimeter of the stamped panel with a "Scor-Bug". (If you're not familiar with this item, it's a handheld rotary tool that engages with a channel on a Scor-Pal and pierces a row of tiny holes in the paper.)
Card 5 - 5.5x4.25"
The rain hat was an adorable addition to the Rainy Day sheet. Use your favorite medium to color the image and pair it with the "get well" and "you're needed out there" sentiments.
Card 6 - 5.5x4.25"
Stamp the rain image onto a Sky panel with Lagoon ink and overlay with the sentiment stamped with India Black ink. Wrap with jute and layer onto panels and a Rust folded card base.
Card 7 - 7x5"
Use the rain image to add texture to the 5x7" folded card base. Stamp at an angle with Mahogany ink.
Card 8 - 7x5"
Stamp the rain image with Sapphire ink and add the sentiment. Wrap the upper left corner of the panel with blue satin ribbon and layer onto additional panels and a folded card.
