Thinking Of You...

Hi all! Today I have had a chance to play with another of my lovely Papermania Nostalgia stamps by John Byars. This one is called 'Rainy Day'.

Today I stamped onto DCWV linen textured card with Rich Cocoa Memento ink. I coloured her with my Promarkers. I usually use Rymans smooth card with my Promarkers, but I wanted a canvas look for a change. The only difference is that the card was was much more absorbent than the Rymans, and the Promarker colours end up darker, so I used really pale shades. I added Rock Candy Stickles to the rain puddle and umbrella for a wet look. The pictures don't pick it up too well though.

The papers were just scraps from my scrap box. I think they are DCWV and Pink Petticoat.
I put the blue paper through my little ribbler gadget, and then wiped the Rich Cocoa ink pad over it to distress & pick up the texture. I punched the edge of the striped paper with my MS Doily punch, and distressed by going around the detail with my Burnt Sienna Promarker.

Other items used were;
Nestabilities,
Martha Stewart Doily punch,
FREE ticket sentiment found here.
paper flowers,
large pearl brad,
dewdrops,
paper twine.

I will enter this into the following challenges;

TOTALLY GORJUSS - thinking of you

CHARISMA CARDZ - for 'pink'

COLOUR CREATE - for WARM PINKS, CHOCOLATE and WHITE (I also added a splash of blue, I had to really because of the puddle lol!!)

PASSION FOR PROMARKERS - distressing

Thanks so much for peeking today!
