Shaking off the rain clouds


The challenge at Crafty Sentiments this week is Anything Goes.Drop on by to join in the fun and be in with the chance of winning a super prize.Don’t forget to take a look at some fabulous inspiration by the talented DT while you’re there.

Isobel – Thinking of Spring looks like she’s deep in a daydream here 🙂 She’s a beautiful New Release at Crafty Sentiments Designs.She’s been coloured with Copic Ciao & Sketch Markers then fussy cut.I decided to make a bit of a stylised scenic card and had the idea of adding a cloud shaker element.It was a bit fiddly as this die cuts a frame of the cloud and I had to line everything up!It was a process that needed thing about,that’s for sure – or maybe it’s just me 😉 But I did get there in the end 😀 I placed the die cut floral piece in the centre and added the ‘grassy’ hillocks (careful!) across the bottom.The carefully planned out sky strip was then added across the top.I chose the sequins partly because they tie in with the colours of the image and papers but also they reminded me of little raindrops waiting to fall from the clouds.As Isobel appears to be so deep in thought I added the sentiment to reflect that feeling 🙂
