I was so excited to open up my package from Crafters' Companion! Not only did I order some goodies for myself, but I had won the new Morehead clear stamp set called "Raindrops".
Crafters' Companion Challenge Blog is FRIENDSHIP. So today's card features my flower-holding girl, face hidden by her over-sized rain hat. I colored her with a combination of Spectrum Noir markers and Copics, and used a bit of Stickles to make her shimmer. I also stamped her onto patterned paper and paper-pieced her outfit onto the image. Then I fussy-cut her out and popped her onto some fun cartoon paper featuring the Peanuts gang. I don't know of a tighter group of friends who have lasted through the years!!
After framing my image, I added some pearls and an extra sunflower. I had some last few pieces of purple papers in my file drawer (hurray, my stash is going down!) and finally added a bit of fiber to the corner of my card.
I don't know if you can see it, but I also used a tiny border stamp from the same set in silver ink at the top of the Peanuts paper, since I had to cut out the original raindrops from my girl.
