At Digi Sketch Challenge we have another new challenge and the theme this fortnight is Rain,Rain Go Away!We have the super Crafty Sentiments and Ellephantastic as our sponsors.

It’s the lovely Anne-Marie’s turn to host and here’s her fabby sketch :

You can follow the sketch,theme or even both.Hope you stop by the challenge site and check out my fellow DT’s beautiful creations.A truly inspirational bunch.

As you can see I’ve made two card and both use our sponsors images 🙂

For my top card I’ve used Mia by Crafty Sentiments and coloured her with Copic Ciao Markers and used white gel pen to add highlights.Altho’ she’s not really designed as a rainy day image I’ve applied 3D Crystal Lacquer to her coat to give the appearance of a rain mac and also to her boots to make them look like wellies 😉 I’ve flicked a pale blue Copic Ciao Marker across the background and coated it with more lacquer for instant rain!I chose the papers,that I’ve had an age,to compliment the rainy feeling.All edges have had the Tim Holtz Paper Distresser treatment.A couple of  clouds have been sanded before being placed on the card.To finish the card a clear button has been threaded through some paper twine which has been wrapped around the border piece.

For my second card I’ve used Emily Autumn by Ellephantastic and coloured her with ProMarkers this time,trying to incorporate as many of the new Spring/Summer Limited Edition colours.I’ve also gone for a different look by using pastel backing papers and card.I cut a circle frame to place behind the image from some Nellie’s  Multi Frame Circle Dies.I’ve not used them like this before but I really like it 🙂 I stamped a circular sentiment and added it to another one of the frames.Some acrylic dew drops have been used to embellish.
