MAKE A SPLASH-Sparkle & Shine Challenge #2

March 16, 2015

Sparkle and Shine is hosting its second challenge.  It is so exciting to participate and have a chance to win a gift card from Winnie and Walter!  I am a huge fan of their site!  Pretty Pink Posh is the other sponsor of this challenge and I LOVE their sequins !  I just received a new order, so I have  a few more colors now!

Since April is right around the corner, I decided to use my new stamp, die and stencil set "Rain, Rain, Go Away" from Simon Says Stamp.  

The first thing I did to create this card was cut my white layer using the rectangle stitched dies from Simon Says Stamp  I mixed Embossing Paste and Marina Mist re-inker together to create the paste for the raindrops. Using the stencil, I used the paste to create the raindrop background.  A piece of patterned paper from my stash was added to the bottom section.  I also found a piece of ribbon to match in my stash.  It is a retired, Stampin' Up! Marina Mist ribbon.  I mounted this piece on Daffodil Delight.  

I colored this adorable little girl using a variety of Copic Markers.  I added Glossy Accents to her boots to make them shiny.  They remind me of my boots as a child.  (I always wanted red ones!)  I also added some Wink of Stella on the buckles and on her coat and hat for a little glisten.  I cut the sentiment using a hexagon punch and sponged a little Marina Mist on the sides.  
Pretty Pink Posh sequins were added to finish my card!
