Hi crafty friends! Do you remember that last week I made a Water drop thank you card related to the terrible drought in California? I was hoping for a little rain down here while making the card. Then, a few days later, some unexpected magic happened when I was enjoying the time with my husband at the Renegade craft fair last Sunday. Suddenly it started raining! Yes, I said RAINING! There was quite a lot of rain for about one hour. I was so excited to be outside in the rain. I also felt like my card helped to make sure we got rain. Ha-ha!
Now it’s time for a new challenge over at CASology. After having some precious rain, this week’s cue card seemed perfect for me to work with. A nice easy cue word with so many options for interpretation! Then I decided to go punny for my card. Rain+Bow=Rainbow! I’ve incorporated both on my design and here is what I came up with:
Ta-da! This is a rain-bow card! I wanted to create a raining scene inspired by my recent experience. For a focal point, I added a bow die-cut out of rainbow patterned paper as an umbrella. I know there was no such a thing like bow shaped umbrella. But we can imagine anything we want on our cards, right? *wink*
I wanted my bow take a main stage, so I stamped off the sentiment once on a scrap paper to get a soft look. I drew freehand those raindrops using Copic marker. (I took Copic B00 and fully touched the tip of the marker to the card front, making a rain drop shape.) Aren’t they so cute? I love how my card turned out! Hope you like my creation, too.
By the way, this is a photo tutorial on how I put together my card. 1)Die cut a bow using bow die from Bowtiful Die Set by Waffle Flower Crafts. 2)Add some raindrops using Copic Marker B00: Frost Blue. 3)Die cut a bow out of patterned paper. Then inlay the bow onto card. 4)Stamp the sentiment from Framed Out #2 by Papertrey Ink. Then add one more layer of bow die-cut using dimensional adhesive. (The last step didn’t shown in the photo above.)
Now it’s your turn – I can’t wait to see what clean and simple ideas you all come up with this week. But before you get started, make sure to stop by each of the DT’s blog for more inspiration! Thanks so much for stopping by, your visits are truly appreciated. Happy crafting!
