Challenge 37 - It's Raining, Its Pouring...!

Morning Crafters - wow such a lot of you joined in last week and shared some fabulous Snow People with us - so a huge thanks to all of you for that!!

This week's challenge is called 'Its Raining, Its Pouring...! We have had such wet weather lately we thought it would be very appropriate! We want to see your 'Rain' cards!

There are a few examples below from the Design Team and we look forward to seeing what you all come up with!

Jo, Fifi, Lesley, Becky, Kate & Wendy

I stamped Maggie and coloured her with Pro Markers. I embossed some card stock and sanded down the embossed areas to give the circles a distressed look. I stitched around the edge of the card and added a decorative ribbon and brad.

I made a background of rainbow paper, then embossed some white card with a dotty Cuttlebug embossing folder because I thought it looked a bit like rain. I covered a slide mount with a rainbow paper and stamped some acetate with black Stazon. The raindrops are acrylic stickers. A length of white ribbon with a tag was used to finish it off.

I stamped Maggie and water coloured her with Marvy Le Plumes. I matted and layered her onto Funky Fairies Doodlementals papers, added a message, some Primas and glitter glued the raindrops to give a sparkle.

I inherited this cute little image in an image swap so I don't know who it is from - maybe someone could tell me? I coloured my image with Copics and layered her onto some DCWV patterned paper. I decorated the edge of the card using a Martha Stewart border punch and embellished with a fabric flower and yellow pearls.
