This is Totally CASE'd from Frenchie Stamps and her video Here - now I follow Frenchie - and love her tutorials - she give such great detailed directions but doesn't drag the video out. Plus love her accent. So when I saw her video on "rain" and SU Grunge set (which I have and which I use a lot) I decided to get out some supplies of my own and improvise. I had an umbrella die - stamped some tiny dragonflies in white pigment ink on the black umbrella. I used distress inks to do my base and sky. Then the fun begins - I used the grunge set to stamp some puddles under the umbrella - then used the lines from the Grunge set to stamp the rain. I tried a couple different colors to stamp my rain and finally used a Memento gray. Then I added some raindrops with my diamond glaze ink and fine point bottle. The sentiment is from AMuse studio and very fitting for the last week we have had here in southern Mo. I'm thinking I'm going to send it to a friend who has been baling water out of their basement the last few days. Enjoy.
I am an addicted papercrafter that retired from a career in nursing 2 years ago. I am married to my "high school sweetheart" and he loves to fish - leaves me more time to craft. We share our home with 3 big dogs, Bella, CoCo and our newest Buddy and 1 cat Calli. If you don't find me walking the dogs, reading, you will find me in my craft studio.
