Rainy Day Monday........



Good morning everyone and I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
Today's forecast calls for rain and in my world it means "stamp til your hands cramp"! lol!
I made this card for WOJ's weekly challenge and this weeks theme pertains to Autumn Colors. I decided to use the WOJ Stamp,Willow with Umbrella for my card. This is a newer stamp from WOJ and I think it is a cutie!

The card stocks are SU's kiwi kiss,really rust, barely banana and PTI (stampers select). The DSP is SU's Haiku. This DSP may not "grab" you at first but when it does, look out...its awesome! The inks used were Adirondack Ink and Copic Markers. To embellish my card, I used liquid glass to give my hand drawn stones a wet look and I also applied liquid glass to the umbrella. I also used ribbon, prima flower, pearls, paper pierce tool and nestabilities lg. round die. The sentiment is a peel off from my stash. To make my image pop, I cut and colored in a second image and glued the cut out image directly onto of my original image. I also lightly washed the background area using my watercolor brush.

Have a great day and thank you for stopping by!
