Sunshine & Rain

Hi there!

The weather has such a huge impact on our every day lives. Talking about the weather is also a great way to start a conversation... even with a stranger!

The weather also provides wonderful life lessons in the form of quotes and of course design inspiration for us card makers!

Today's card  is my visualization of one such quote :








I used:
  • Raindrop stencil  & sun cut with Silhouette cameo
  • Distress ink for BG stencilling
  • Promarkers to color the sun/ rainbow
  • My own digi sentiment which I will share below

You are welcome to download and use this on your cards or other projects.






Sharing my card at:

The paper players  ~ CAS Rainbow

Fusion card challenge ~ Rain or Shine (using both sketch and photo as inspiration)



                                        

Thanks for visiting me today!

Hugs
HAnnelie

I'm telling Silhouette...I'm telling them that you need to be on their DT! What a clever, clever card, Hannelie! Love the rainbow rays on your sun, and the half rain stencil. This is just sweet. You've got me smiling again... Bev

Your card is a perfect interpretation of that quote, Hannelie. Very clever of you to combine the rainbow and sun in one image.
