Rain, Rain Go Away!

Hi Crafty Friends,
I am honored to be joining the Creative Craft Cottage Challenge Blog Design Team! This is my first post! We have a great theme this month, it's NO PATTERNED PAPER. Our sponsor is Craftin' Desert Divas! Check out there amazing collection of stamps, digis, stencils and more! This little guy is called Bear with Umbrella and he is only $0.99!

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: What color is your umbrella?
A:Me? I have a fun paisley Vera Bradley one!
 I used Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink to create the cloud background with the Craftin' Desert Divas Cloud Sky stencil. Then I splattered it with Blue Jean Distress Oxide Ink and water to create the "rain" look.
I diecut the clouds and inked the edges with the Blue Jean ink and popped them up with foam tape. I finished my card by adding the darling copic colored image and sweet sentiment.
Join the challenge here! I can't wait to see what you create!
