Rain or Shine!

When ICR has a Rain theme, I was looking around for some ideas and this is the stamp I landed on and fell in love with. Ujjwal recently sourced this for me. And I am glad I am able to use this in another ICR Challenge – the Challenge #10.
Here is the sketch grabbed from the ICR Challenge Pad
I wanted to CASify this sketch – inspired by non other than Simplicity. And this is what I came up with.
Isn’t the sentiment super sweet? :)
How to:
  1. Stamp the image in black – Hero arts black ink. Image used is Ippity’s Rain or Shine
  2. Made two masks: one for the legs and also one mask to mimic grass
  3. Taped the masks down and stamped the grass repeatedly using Ippity A Bit of Burlap
  4. Stamped the sentiment which came with the image.
  5. Stamped the image’s umbrella on a piece of felt, cut it out, mounted it and popped a white pearl on it. Felt and pearl from itsybitsy. Pearl coloured black using a gel pen
  6. Pencil coloured the shirt and the skirt.
  7. Contemplated on making the card shorter
  8. Dumped the idea
  9. And here we are :)
Trying to figure how to CASify a sketch wasn’t easy. But I LOVED the entire process of tossing this idea in my head and love the way it came out as well. And it is one layered too!! I am so thrilled! :)
  1. ICR – Challenge #10
  2. allsortschallenge. – Week 122 Clean and Simple
  3. sentimentalsundays – Challenge #74 - Step Out of Your Comfort Zone – I’ve NEVER EVER tried masking and stamping. I’m such chicken when it comes to that. So this masking the image and for the rolling grass is certainly a LEAP out of my comfort zone :)
  4. trulyscrumptiouschallenges. - Challenge 66–Clean & Simple
  5. All Things Unity #40 - One Layer. Both the stamps are Ippity

Thanks for stopping by :)
