Just Us Girls #337

It's Word Week at Just Us Girls and the word is raindrops.
Wouldn't you know I've already made two rain cards lately and I wanted to come up with a different way to use my MFT raindrop stencil.  On one card, I inked the stencil and on the other I used embossing paste.  What else is there to do?  Look and see.
For this background I ran the Stormy Sky Distress Ink pad across the mixed-media paper, covering it all.  When it was dry, I put the stencil over it and using a damp baby wipe removed the color.  The boots from PB were colored with Zigs and covered with Glossy Accents.  I'd love a pair of wellies like these.  The umbrella from MFT was cut from Orange Zest and an offcut from a previous umbrella was the exact color I needed to tie it all together.

Now it's your turn.  What does the word raindrops conjure up for you? Stop by Just Us Girls for some inspiration from the Design Team and enter your card in the gallery.  You just may be our next Chic of the Week.

Hope to see you there.
