It is dreary and rainy here AGAIN today! It really needs to stop. It is Spring now so the weather really needs to start acting like it!! LOL!! OK, I'll stop complaining because I know that some of you are still getting SNOW!!! My card is for Cindy's MFT Monday Sketch challenge and is really appropriate for the weather we have had lately!
I LOVE paper piecing and on this card I did a lot of that! The base of my card is Celery and is 5 1/4 square. The next mat is Basic Black cardstock. All of the decorative papers are from Daisy D's and can be found HERE! On top of the pink striped paper I used a strip of Celery cardstock and then a mat of the butterfly decorative paper. The flowers are from Making Memories and were glued on using Elmer's glue. I also added MAMBI crystals to the center of each flower using Elmer's glue again. The stamps are all from MFT and is called Rain or Shine. I stamped the focal image using Basic Black ink on Basic Grey Mellow cloud paper. I colored a few of the parts using Prismacolor pencils and paper pieced the rest. I also added some glitter using my Copic Spica clear glitter pen on the dog collar and umbrella handle. I matted this on Basic Black cardstock and mounted it using dimensionals. The clouds were stamped on the same Basic Grey Mellow cloud paper using my Versamark. I then heat embossed using Ranger Antique Crystals embossing powder. It gave it some glitter and texture. I then cut them out and mounted them using dimensionals as well. The sentiment was stamped using Basic Black ink.
There you go!!! I have another card to share and will upload shortly. I got all my new Basic Grey stuff from Lindsey and since I love it all, I am not sure which to start with!!! I also saw Tamara today and got a few new things from her too!!! I better get busy because you will all want to see this stuff!
