even more EXCITING news ... Through The Craft Room Door

I have some even more EXCITING NEWS!

Today I am
Guest Designer
on the

Today I had the pleasure of colouring and creating with the super cute Cloudy Rain Cloud With Raindrops digital stamp from Wink Wink Ink to make some cheery rainbow cards.

This cute digital stamp comes with both a B&W image and a pre-coloured image,
so I decided to use both.

I placed the images on my Silhouette Cameo design mat, added my sentiment and sized them to make a front panels for an A5 top folding card.  I printed the precoloured image on blue A5 cardstock and the B&W image on A5 X-Press It Blending card.  I also printed the precoloured and B&W images on white cardstock and heat them too.

I took the B&W image, added some X-Press Mask-It and fussy cut it out, trimming to the inner edges of the cloud (so that when I applied the mask it will not leave a white edge when I ink around the masked cloud).
I took the precoloured image and fussy cut it out, then went around the outer edges with a black marker for a neat finish.

Here is the fussy cut precoloured cloud
 and here is my Copic marker coloured cloud.

Next was my time to get inky, very inky ... I ended up with blue fingers!

I took the blue panel, used a white gel pen to colour the raindrops, inked the background with Distress Inks, heat set then finished it off by adhering the fussy cut cloud in place.

For the B&W image panel, I took the mask and placed it over the cloud, inked the background with Distress Inks, heat set then coloured the cloud with Copic markers and the raindrops with a white gel pen.  I was quite surprised with the result, there really isn't much difference between the white vs blue cardstock after the inking.

The "RAIN" and "rainbows" sentiments for both cards are AC DIY Thickers.  I went around the edges of each letter with a rainbow of Copic markers then smothered them with the matching glitter.  The colour was a bit pale with just a single layer of glitter, so I went over each letter with liquid adhesive and added another layer for a rich, sparkling finish.
