Peach Rain

So you ever start working on something with no particular recipient in mind?

That's how today's card started.  I spotted the Fusion Challenge - 'Paris Rain', and quickly had an idea of what I might do ... ... and so it began!

The large image space drew my attention right away, and both my aqua painter brush plus watercolor paper were within reach.

Let's be honest ... I do have a LOT of stamps.  But I do not have the Eiffel tower, etc.  No problem!  I wanted this happy image from 'Beautiful You' to be 'dancing in the rain', so the image was stamped, then stamped again on some Eclipse masking tape.  The mask protected the central image while I lightly washed the paper as though it were a rainy day.

While that was drying, I worked on color selection and chose the additional stamps.  All the while, I still didn't really have a recipient in mind for the card-to-be, until I heard about a friend from my stamping group.  With that cyber shoulder-tap, I knew the exact purpose of this creation.

Don't you love it when that happens?

The framing around the sentiment was stamped with the leaf image from Kinda Eclectic as seen creating the surrounding foliage on the card's front.

Sharp Snips & Pretty Papers!

How long has it been since you've sat down with pointy sharp paper snips and pretty papers to enjoy a little paper piecing?  Considering this was once a favorite technique for me, it has been way too long here!  

Seems as though the 'Beautiful You' stamp set begs for an 'uptown' girl look!  



Lots of pretty patterns in the Floral Boutique designer series paper collection will work for creating some lovely paper piecing works.
The underlying texture from the 'Seaside' embossing folder gives such a nice flow behind the model image, as if we're watching a fashion show.

It's a gloriously beautiful day here today - with NO wind!   So I'm giving in to closing the laptop and enjoying a bit of fresh air before the wind comes back.  I can be reached ... no need to worry.  Email is easy-peasy and I'm happy to help!  Psssssst!  I adore your comments or thoughts if you will share!
