When It Rains

Hello! Dawn Rene here today with another card I made with The Rubber Cafe's April Creative Cafe Kit of the Month.  One of the sentiment stamps is "When It Rains On Your Parade Just Put On Really Cute Boots." So I crafted up this card with clouds, rain, and boots!

Here is a picture of the card...

Here are the steps I went through to create the card.

1. I covered white card stock with Tim Holtz Distressed Stain (Stormy Sky). I did this by rubbing some of the stain on my craft mat and then swirling the card through the stain.

2. I put some of the distressed stain in a mini spray bottle. I sprayed layers of the distressed stain and Pure Sunshine Dylusions Ink on the cardstock - letting each layer dry before applying another layer. I did this until I liked the color and texture.

3. Next I used the rain image and the distressed stain to stamp the background of the card.

4. I stamped the umbrella, boots, and sentiment on patterned paper from the kit, fussy cut them out, and distressed the edges.

5. For the clouds, I stamped the image on vellum with the VersaMark Watermark Stamp Pad and heated them with clear embossing powder. I lightly applied distressed stain with a sponge. Then I cut out the clouds.

6. Last, I adhered all the pieces to the card and added White Enamel Accents.
