Create Your Own Sunshine

Come Rain or Shine is the challenge over at Artful Times and I have just got in with a couple of hours to spare!



I saw this stamp set which is called Uptown Girl Sunny is Stylish by Stamping Bella, when I went to Newbury show a couple of weeks ago and I loved it and it was perfect for this challenge.  I tried to make it look like the rain was falling round her and she was in the sunshine she had the created to go with the sentiment - I hope you think it works?  The paper I paper pieced for her clothes and is also the mat for the sentiment is Bo Bunny Isabella 6 x 6 pad.  I used Spellbinders Curved Rectangles, Small and Classic Circles and the grass and foliage are Inky Doodles and Marion Emberson clear stamps.  The inks are Tumbled Glass, Mown Lawn and Sqeezed Lemonade Distress Ink along with Black Versafine and the hair, skin and shoes are coloured with Promarkers. Not forgetting, of course, the Card Candi!  Please visit Artful Times and see what everyone else has been up to.  As usual, I am behind with my visit - but I will catch up I promise!  Thank you for visiting me and take care!

A great card, Chris, and yes, it does work! The rain looks really good.
I don't want rain, but I could do with a few breezes here!

What a sensational card, Christine! You have totally captured the essence of the sediment with your foxy lady standing in her own sunshine while the cloud rains all around her! I just love this; that little bag is adorable!!

Thanks for popping by, Chris. (Please never feel any pressure to do so or comment. I feel blogging should be a pleasure, not become a burden. Otherwise, it defeats the purpose.)
