Drenched

I'm submitting this card to the From the Heart Design Team Call. I love Faith Skrdla's images! I also just happen to play along with her progressive monthly challenge which is how I found out about the DT call. I'd love to color up some of FTH images more often for sure! :)

Here's my card:
I've used card stock, printed paper and ribbon from my stash. I colored the image with Copic markers. I added some Robin's Nest clear dew drops to mimic the falling raindrops. I dabbed some Glossy Accents on the rain drops and puddle to give it a wet appearance. That's me! All about the little details. :)

I used a We R Memory Keepers Sew Stamper Tool to create the stitched background. What a nightmare! I purchased this item about a year ago and kept forgetting I had it. The ribbon reminded me this time and I thought it would add to the background. I think it did... but it was a horror using it! The ink stays wet for quite a bit and I didn't pick up on this right away. It stained almost EVERYTHING! I didn't mean to add a ribbon to the top of the card but I had to cover these black smudges that I couldn't cover with the colored image. :( I was a little perturbed by the whole thing and NOW I see that there's a video demonstrating how to use it on You Tube. Ugh! I planned to pass the stamp to someone else who would want it but I think I'll watch the video and give this little gizmo one more try. I've often said... my momma didn't raise no quitter! ;) lol

Thanks for stopping by!
