Rainbows and Rain




Puddles, one of the new rubber stamp sets released by Sparkle N Sprinkle reminds me of playing out in the rain when I was a kid.

I used the digi version and printed the image out a couple times so that I could fussy cut out the following pieces: the umbrella, the raincoat, and the rubber boots.


For the umbrella, I cut out each section and then heat embossed each piece with a different embossing powder: Red Apple, Sapphire, Pumpkin, and Christmas Green.  The raincoat was heat embossed with Clear embossing powder and then covered with Galaxy Night glitter using the Glueless Glitter technique.  The Glueless Glitter technique was also used on the rain boots and they were finished with Daisy glitter.

In order to give a bit of color to the sentiment, I outlined each letter of the word "rainbow" with a Sakura glue pen and added the following glitters: Fire Engine Red, Orange Surprise, Daisy, Lator Gator, Ocean, Cobalt Glaze, and Purple Dust.  Ocean glitter was also added to each letter of the word "rain".

The rain drops in the background were created using Dimensional Glue and then covered with more Ocean glitter.  The multi-looped twill bow was stained like a rainbow with Distress Inks.  For the button in the center of the bow, I added some Dimensional Glue and covered it with more Ocean glitter.

Oh Anne, I can't tell you how much I love this card! It's so serene and speaks volumns - yet so colorful and whimisical and cheery at the same time! The beautiful sheen to the umbrella looks like rain :) I love the coordinating rainbow ribbon - this is fabulous from top to bottom! ♥

Wahhhh! I'm having a tough time with Google, Anne! Left a long comment last night and I see it is not there! Good thing I stopped by again to look at the raincoat! Your imagination must have been exceptionally happy in the creative process! Knowing how much you thrive with colorful details, this must have been pure pleasure for your dancing fingers! Lovely colors and wonderful idea to repeatedly integrate the rainbow theme! Love everything about your fun card! XXOO
