I have a cute Spring card for you today to help distraction from the world news. I was playing with the new release from Lawn Fawn, and this card is totally inspired by the dull days we have currently.
First I stamped and coloured the images from the new Beary Rainy Day stamp set using Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers: GB4, CT4, CT3, CT2, TB5, TB3, TB2, IB3, IB1, EB6, EB4, EB3, EB2, EB1, AG2, CG3, CG2, CG1, CG05. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut everything out.
To set the scene I did some quick ink blending on Bristol Smooth cardstock with Distress Oxide inks and blender brushes: Blueprint Sketch. Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass. I spritzed it with water and added some diluted ink splatters. I love the textured look, even if I am going to die cut this piece.
When it was totally dry I ran it through my die cut machine with the Rainy Backdrop Portrait die. I backed up the backgrund with blue glitter cardstock, it looks gorgeous on its own!
I did some ink blending on a scrap piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock with Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn, added the ink splatters and made sure it was dry before I cut it with the Grassy Hillside border die. I assembled the scene using 3D foam squares to pop up the bears.
For the sentiment I used the new Henry’s ABC to spell Rainy and cut it out from a yellow patterned paper from the Perfectly Plaid Spring paper pad. To make it sturdier I added a yellow layer under each letter ad adhered it to the card. The rest of the sentiment I heat embossed from the Beary Rainy Day stamp set on thin black cardstock strips.
As a finishing touch I used a clear shimmer pen on the raincoats and umbrella and added glossy accents to the boots.
I will link this project up to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.
I hope you liked my card inspiration today and will pop in again soon.
