Waffle Flower - The Sun Always Comes Out Again.
“The only thing a cat worries about is what's happening right now. As we tell the kittens, you can only wash one paw at a time.”
---------Lloyd Alexander from Time Cat
I am back with another card for the current Waffle Flower Challenge with this sweet inspiration photo:
For this card I die-cut several clouds from DCWV patterned cardstock and Add a Little Dazzle craft metal (the black diamond color and the silver reverse) using dies from Lawn Fawn Into the Woods and Lil' Inker Rainbows and Clouds sets. I arranged the clouds where I wanted them on my white cardstock using repositionable adhesive so I'd know where I wanted to stamp my sun.
Next, I took my clouds off and stamped the sun with Versamark ink using one of the circles from my Waffle Flower - Flower Circles stamp set. I heat embossed it with bright yellow powder and then sponged over and around the sun with Distress Ink - Mustard Yellow for a shining halo.....making sure I put enough ink on the disc itself to show the lines of the stamp. You can see the detail of the sun in the shot below.
I also sponged around the edges of the cardstock with Distress Ink - Worn Lipstick. Then I adhered my clouds using Beacon 3-in-1 craft glue.
Next, I stamped a wonderful sentiment from my PaperTrey Ink - Hello Sunshine stamp set using Versafine - Smokey Gray ink.
Now that I had everything place, I put on my raindrops. I sketched out with a pencil some parallel lines....so my rain would be all going in the same direction!!! lol... This clearance rack package of little rhinestones (in smoke and clear colors) had them individually and in strings which I cut to length and adhered with additional liquid glue. By using the glue instead of only the adhesive that came on the back, I had some wiggle room for getting them arranged in the right place.
I really love how this card turned out and hope you do, too!!!
