For my card I thought it would be fun to make a wreath. I cut a 3 3/4 inch square panel of white card and placed it into my MISTI with the Gina K Wreath Builder stencil. I then stamped out a wreath using the raindrops, cloud and umbrella stamps from Skull and Cross Buns Spring Motifs stamp set. After I’d completed my stamping I quickly coloured the images in with my Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers.
Setting the wreath panel aside I worked directly on my card base to create a background. I used the raindrop stencil from Skull and Cross Buns and ink blended over it with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide to create a raindrop background. I shifted the stencil and added another layer of raindrops with Stormy Sky, and again with Mermaid Lagoon.
I white heat embossed a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp’s Showers and Flowers stamp set onto a snippet dark blue card and adhered it over my wreath. I then adhered the wreath panel to a larger snippet of the same blue card. Finally I adhered the matter wreath panel onto my rain drop patterned card base.
Whilst it wasn’t exactly how I’d imagined when I started the card, I am really happy with how this turned out. I think it works nicely for a rainy design, don’t you?
