Sunday Stampers Week 263 - Writing - Thursday 27th June

Good Morning Friends,

First of all a big welcome - or indeed 'Wilkommen' to my new follower, Rosie. Thank you so much for choosing to follow me! I hope you will like what you see!

It's Sunday Stampers time again! This week Hels Sheridan set the theme of including writing in our card/project and this is my card for this time...

I used some matt Clarity card and first of all punched a circle in a strip of card and laid it across the top of the card so I could use some masking fluid to paint inside the circle. Doing this stops any paint of ink adhering to the card once the fluid is dry. I wanted to created a moon and it would not be completely clear,especially in the rain(!) so I left a few gaps for the inks to seep through.

Whilst it was drying, I stamped the umberella  and and quote - both Tim Holz stamps in black archival and heat embossed using clear embossing powder.

Once the masked circle was completely dry, I got out my brayer and a mixture of distress inks: broken china, dusty concord, chipped sapphire, plus butterscotch adirondack and then using the brayer I created the background.

To finish off I took a little of the butterscotch and a piece of cut n' dry and inked inside the white circle ti create a more 'creamy' moon effect. Finally I spritzed over the entire card with Cosmic Shimmer Pearl Mist to create some 'rain' splatter and added some brads.

Thanks for stopping by!

Love and hugs,
Carole X


  1. Morning Carole,
    I love your stamping projects, the background is great with those stamps.

  2. You always put so much effort into your backgrounds Carole and this is no exception. The stamped image and quote are great against your fabulous background! Christine xx

  5. Hi Carole,
    stunning work on this wonderful card. As Christine said you put sooooo much effort into your backgrounds on your cards. I too love the brolly man. The moon is fabulous.
    Now this makes me think of the musical Singing in the rain. I don't know if you know that when they made that film
    they couldn't get the water or rain to show up in the film shots so someone came up with the idea of putting milk in
    with the water.
    Have a wonderful crafty day.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  6. Another fabulous creation Carole, your ideas are endless. xx Christine H
