Tomorrow's Forecast

So yesterday I mentioned that I have been stamping the last couple of days. I wanted to share with you another card. For this one I used the color combo from this weeks Color Throwdown challenge.

I don't have Tangerine Tango so I used Only Orange. I'm thinking I should have used Groovy Guava though. Oh well. I'm still happy with how it turned out.

For this card I started out with my main image (SU's And Everything Nice) and I stamped it on White cardstock using Momento Tuxedo Black ink. Then I colored it with my Copics. I then mounted my image onto Only Orange and then on Brilliant Blue. I paper pierced the top corner and added a brad. For the card base I used the cuttlebug swirls embossing folder on the Brilliant blue peice, mounted that onto the ballet blue card base and paper pierced the top and bottom along the brilliant blue peice. I added some ribbon, mounted my main image and then used my stampin' write marker to ink up just the top part of my sentiment from SU's Brighter Tomorrow, stamped that on white cardstock and then punched it out using my word window punch and mounted that with a brad. Inside the card I stamped the other half of the sentiment. So the full card says, Tomorrow's Forecast, Brighter Than Today. To finish off the card I added Crystal Effects to the rain puddle and the rain drops so that the rain would look like actual water.

It didn't turn out half bad if I do say so myself! *grin*
