Whatever the Weather

Okay, I confess ...having an already crammed craft room is not enough for me, I've been shopping....
This is my first play with Lindy's Stamp Gang magicals, used as watercolours over a heat embossed stamp.

The umbrella stamp is a very old one (over 12 years?) from Magenta and the two sentiments are Clearly Besottted and a magazine freebie. I also used a raindrops embossing folder from Taylored Expressions.

I made this last night and my fingers were dark blue when I went to work this morning. I can't believe no-one commented on it - at least to my face! - they were probably too polite!

I'd like to enter:

  6. Well, I bet your co-workers are probably used to see you with inky fingers before and they know you are a crafty person, good for you.
    And your card is delightful, love the water color combination and the beautiful and meaningful sentiments.

  7. I usually get my fingers cleaned but the nails can be tricky.
    I've never seen a raindrop ef before, rain and umbrella cards are quite popular this time of year, so what a great find!
