Valerie's Spring Rain

Hi everyone and thanks for stopping by!

It's been way too long since I last used this cute stamp by Crissy Armstrong. It's called "Valerie's Spring Rain" and can be purchased at Whimsy Stamps.

Photobucket

It's been stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah solar crest, and colored with Derwent Coloursoft and Prismacolor Pencils.

I cut the image out and layered it onto a nestabilies label which was layered about half way under the strip of wood designer paper. I used a simple sketch again, added one of the Everyday Postage Stamp Sentiments from Whimsy's Raindrop Echo collection, and cut it out using the Whimsy mini postage die, then embellished with some ribbon, button with twine, a layered prima flower and some flourishes from the Vines Shapeology die, also from Whimsy Stamps. To finish it off I paper pierced around the top part of the card.

I would love to enter my card to the following challenges:
Enjoy your weekend!

  18. Oh, I love this image and how you colored it. It is one of my favorite images, though I think I have only used it once. I love how the wooden paper looks on here. It adds such a wonderful touch.
