Rain or Shine

Hello my friends and welcome back again.  Today I am sharing another card I created using the Birdie Brown - Rain or Shine stamp set from MFT Stamps.

I coloured ll of the stamped images with Copic markers and I added some highlights with a white gel pen.  The sky was created using some distress inks that I blended onto some white card stock and then sprayed with water, which I blotted with some paper towels.

I'm pretty happy with the "sidewalk" I created using the largest die from the Blueprints 13 die-namics, which added a stitched outline on all four side of the rectangle.  I then used the single stitched line from the same Blueprints set to add the breaks in the sidewalk. I think it turned out so well.

Here are a couple of pictures of the finished card.




Below is a list of the supplies I used.

Stamps: MFT Stamps - Birdie Brown-Rain or Shine
Dies: MFT Stamps - Blueprints 13 and Grassy Fields

I'm Here For You

Hello my friends, I'm back today sharing a card I created with a stamp set I just bought from MFT Stamps called Puddle Jumper.  This stamp set is the perfect companion to another set called Rain or Shine, also from MFT Stamps, which was released at the same time. (I'll be back soon with a card or two using that set as well.)

I created the background using three different Distress Inks and watercolor paper.  The first thing I did was smoosh the inks onto a Ranger non-stick craft sheet and then I sprayed the ink with some water so that the ink pooled up.  I then took a piece of Tim Holtz watercolor card stock and pounce it into the ink several times, drying it in between each layer of ink.  I also added a few splatters of ink using a paint brush.

The little boy in this stamp set is absolutely adorable, I so loved colouring him up with Copic markers.  I popped him up on the card front with some foam tape to add a bit of dimension to the finished card.



Below is a list of the supplies I used.

Stamps: MFT Stamps - Birdie Brown - Puddle Jumper, Rain or Shine (Sentiment)
Dies: MFT Stamps - Blueprints 13, Memory Box - Puffy Clouds
Inks: Simon Says Stamp - Intense Black,  Versafine - Onyx Black,  Distress Ink - Faded Jeans, Evergreen Bough and Hickory Smoke
Copic Markers:  Skin - E11, E33, V15, R22  Hair - E21, E25, E27  Yellow - Y02, Y15, Y17  Green - G05, G12, G14  Jeans - B93, B95, B97, B99  Shirt - R24, R39
Other: Recollections - 110lb White card stock,  Spectrum Noir - 100lb Ultra Smooth Premium White card stock,  Ranger/Tim Holtz - Distress Water-colour card stock,  Sakura - Black Glaze Pen and White Gel Pen,  Foam Tape
