Happy Friday with AAA cards: Watercolor Rain

                 Today I am sharing a card I made for AAA Cards: Game #34 Watercolor Rain

What a great photo!! I got an idea and you know how that goes. You just gotta make it happen
no matter what. I really needed a rain drop stencil, cover plate or stamp. I had none
of those, believe it or not, so I found a small geotag die that I was able to work with to make
a rain drop die cut piece of paper. The graph paper really helped! I just put it on top of my cardstock.
After I finished this, I really wanted a rainbow effect of sorts showing through the raindrops.
 Now, I NEVER, EVER, would have tried this without
my MISTI. It would have been a failed task for sure, but with my MISTI, a piece of cake!!
I used A dotted line from an old Hot Off The Press Stamp Set and kept stamping and changing colors while I shifted my paper about 1/16 of an inch!! Fun, fun, fun!!!!!
I then, clear embossed the entire page instead of trying to just emboss the raindrops.
And here is the final result after adding my clouds, sentiment and blue cardstock.

                          I am also entering Virginia's View Challenge #13 All Things Embossed

March Challenge: All Things Embossed

                                On the angle you can see the embossing a little better.
That's all for now. Have a great weekend!

    Love the homemade stencil - thanks for that idea! I searched high and low for something in my stash resembling a raindrop ... now I realise I had it all along! Love the bright colours shining through too. thanks for joining the AAA challenge. Sarah x

  3. Genius on the homemade stencil for your raindrops. I love the way you layered the clouds for your sentiment, and the rainbow coming through the raindrops. Wonderful creation. I am so intrigued by the frequent mention of the MISTI. Sounds like I may need to invest. Thanks so much for playing along at AAA cards! Hope to see you again!
