However, we have been having the most gorgeous sunny and warm days here in Portland that I couldn't bring myself to make a card that had anything to do with rain. I just know that it would jinx us and the rain and grey clouds would come back. So, I went with the happy bright colors...
I recently received the 6 new Caribbean colors in the Color Burst pigments and I used all six for this card. On the background panel I simply sprinkled some powder on a dry piece of watercolor paper and then sprayed it with some water from a spray bottle. Set it aside to dry completely and easy peasy...done!
I die cut the thanks out of a piece of watercolor paper that had been painted the same way as my background panel. I also cut two out of white cardstock and layered the three together to give it some added dimension. Once I had that done I went to add the sequins and decided to join in on the Make It Monday this week at Papertrey Ink, so I dry embossed some lines leading down to each sequin.
I know, I said I was avoiding the whole concept of rain, but then when I was done I thought those lines and sequins together looked an awful lot like rain drizzles and drops.
