At last we've had some rain! It rained most of the night last night and I'm sure today I can hear every plant in the garden breathing a sigh of relief.
So here is a rainy day card to celebrate.
I actually designed the card to go with the sentiment - but now I've made it, I'm not sure the sentiment is right for it after all! My idea is that it's meant to be a cheering up card for somebody feeling down in the dumps, and while the sentiment and the design each work separately for that I'm not certain the two work together. I may well CASe my own card later in the week, but using a different sentiment. The one I have used here is a very, very old one from the US company Raindrops on Roses - I don't think they are around any more which is a pity as some of my favourite "old faithful" stamps came from them.
I chose a kraft background so the cloud would stand out well against it. The cloud is a Dies-R-Us die, the rainbow die was given to me by a friend, I think it was a magazine freebie. Rather than waste card by cutting it 5 times in different colours, I cut it in white and coloured the separate strips with Promarkers. I doodled in some rain but if/when I CASe this, I think I'll leave that off to give a cleaner finish as I think it takes the edge of the CAS look.
Well, despite all the self-criticism I'm going to go ahead and share this with
