Rain or Shine, Night or Day? That's me today. I'm totally out of whack. I actually left work because I was half asleep. I had a nice little nappy and got up to make this card. It's for the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club challenge. I have a great time over on the MFT forum at Splitcoast and in case you haven't noticed, I love MFT stamps and products, so it's a no brainer that I play along in the challenges. This week Kim challenged us to make a card with the theme "April Showers", or to use her lay out, or to create a custom embellishment. I think the hardest part of this challenge was to decide which April Showers stamp I'd use. I picked "Rain or Shine" because I haven't gotten the WTG inky in awhile and she has always been one of my favorites. I love that she has polka dot wellies and her doggie has a sweater, this time I put some dots on his sweater to match her boots, I'm sure WTG would gotten her doggie a sweater to match her outfit. Then again, if she's anything like me she might have gotten the doggie sweater first and then compiled the rest of the outfit to got with it. Oh, yeah, like you haven't bought a pair of killer shoes that you didn't have anything to go with and then proceeded to build a killer look to go along with it. And if you haven't it's only because you haven't found those shoes yet, but trust me you will and when you do you'll be remembering this. Oh and by the way, if you did this with a Coach bag or any other accessory it's the same thing.
I also like to do the Scrapmaster's Paradise Color Combo challenge and this week it's Green Galore and Gable Green which I love and Dusty Durango which I loathe. Odd because I loved my orange beetle but I find it yukky in card stock, so for me this one was a challenge but I have a package of Basic Grey "Phoebe" paper and those colors are all in it so I used it for the dp. I colored the boots, sweater and dog with SU markers and the flesh on WTG with copics. The puddle was painted with Pearlescent watercolors. I used ranger glossy accents on the boots in the tag.
I don't always go into detail about all the stuff I do on my cards because it seems to me it's obvious but if you're looking at any of my posts and have a question on how to do something just leave your question in the comments.
