When it Rains...

When It Rains...well, it certainly isn't raining here now! We've been having a day of lake effect snows and winds. A perfect day for stamping! I should be making thank you's, but wanted to ink up this little cutie from Whiff of Joy.

This sketch is for December's Obsure Holiday Fan Club Interactive Site over at Splitcoast. This one happens to be provided by Jessie Rone, one of the Dirty Dozen designers at Splitcoast. It was a fun sketch, and quick to put together.

I began with a base of Bazzill Basic textured paper, and added decorator paper from Cosmo Cricket's Mr. Campy collection. I added a funky flower with twine that I had diecut with my Cuttlebug. This image reminds me of when I was a teenager-- bell bottoms and top as shown. Thus, a flower with the same shape popular in "that" decade...hehe...

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Ink and colored it in with my Copic markers.

Well, back to my thank you's...have a wonderful week!
