Rainy Day?

Howdy Crafters - thank you for stopping by - I make a watercolor background for this card creation. I consider this a Spring Encouragement Card. Sometimes it seems like nothing is going right as if it is raining on our parade... yet God is our protector in all situations. I added the Rainbow ribbon because it reminds me of the beauty that occurs after the rain has ended it journey. Lately, I have been creating sentiments using segments of different stamp sets - which I like the fussy cut look on a card.
~ Have a blessed week - Gail

White cardstock for base of card
WRMK Corner Rounder
Pearlescent Water Colors to create background
MFPSS Rain Clouds Stamp Set - Clouds, Umbrella Handle, Rain boots - Rainy Day and your umbrella stamps
I colored the rain boots with a Spectrum Noir Yellow Marker - I like how the watercolor blended in to give the boots a unique look
The name God was stamped on Patterned Cardstock and fussy cut - It is from a DRS Sentiment Stamp God's Promise
The word Is was stamped on white cardstock with Blue Studio G Ink and fussy cut
I took the umbrella stamp from MFPSS and use only the handle - I stamped that first and then stamped the cloud on top of it - Studio G Blue ink was used for stamping
The stamp Rainy Day? was heat embossed using Rangers Distress Embossing Ink and Gold Embossing Powder
The Rainbow Ribbon is by Recollections
