Hi everyone. Hope you are all well. The sun is shining away here , as it did last time I had a week off work! I'm so lucky! So I thought I'd make a card about RAIN! Haha!
The image I have used is from Saturated Canary and she is called "Sweet Oklahoma". Isn't she adorable!
I have used Promarkers and Copics to colour in this one, only the second time I have used Copics for hair, but I'm really enjoying working with them. I'll never get rid of my Pros though...love them too much!
The background papers are from the "Denim and Diamonds" collection from Raspberry Road Designs, which I've distreesed a little, and applied a little paint to "age" them. The paint I've used is from Wickes...not sure whether its an "ok" product to use on cards but hey-ho...it works for me; it is called Chalky Flat Matt and the colour is "Harvest Moon", and it only cost 50p!!! It looks and feels lovely!
I've used a piece of frayed hessian, some cheesecloth, and some red and white twine, simply embellished with some red buttons.
And that's it!
