Today's card is 4 1/4"x5 1/2." I used a green plaid card stock for the card base. I cut a blue mat at 4"x5 1/4." I then stamped a spotted background stamp, twice, across the blue mat. I used pearlescent sky blue ink by Tsukineko. The stamp is from All Night Media.
I used "3 Birds on Parade" for the image. It was cut at 3 1/2" and is on page 30 of the handbook. I cu the raindrops (layer 1) three times to get a good amount of raindrops for the card. I adhered the bird and rain drops to the card and use a double layer of pop-dots to adhere the middle of the umbrella. It gives is a pretty cool 3-D effect. I used glittery flocking powder on the bird's wings. I also covered her beak in glitter and then glossy accents. The raindrops and her eyes are also covered in glossy accents. I used a Peachy Keen stamp for her eyes, one from the Kawaii Face Assortment.
The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps, the Sweet Somethings set. I also used a stamp from that set on the inside as well. The blue mat inside is 4"x5 1/4," the green plaid mat is 3 1/4"x4 1/2," and the pink mat is 3"x4 1/4." I also added two more rain drops, covered in glossy accents, to the inside of the card as well.
I made this for the following challenges:
