Splish Splash

Hey all you crafters out there... There is another challenge going on at the Happy Little Stampers Mixed Media Challenge.. and the challenge this time is WATER. Now you can water color or color water which ever you like  but I decided to take it literally so this is my interpretation.

I first clear embossed the square background stamp from SSS. Then I inked up two colors of blue SSS lake shore and SSS steel blue and blended them together

Then I took my raindrop stencil from SSS and mixed some texture paste with Distress ink blueprint sketch ink and mermaid lagoon to dye the paste the color I wanted. 


I then die cut out the umbrella to make a shaker card.  I then took glossy accents and put it over each of the rain drops to give it that realistic look. I found the sentiment at my local dollar store (love it when that happens) I inked it up on Vellum paper and clear embossed over the top of black ink to make it POP and cut out around the words

If you play along you could win a stamp set from Happy Little Stampers

hope you enJOYed
