Rainy Day

I’m over at the Shimmerz blog today with a rainy day watercolor card. I don’t know about you, but here in Texas we’ve had our fair share of rain over the last couple of weeks. This cute set from Shimmerz called Blessing in the Storm is the perfect reminder to look on the bright side of things.

And isn’t this dog is the cutest? And the sentiments are so fun!

I stamped the image in InkOn3 Fadeout Ink so that I could try my hand at no line watercoloring. I started with spraying a little Chick-a-dee Spritz on my pallet and painted the yellow portions. I also used a little orange on my pallet to give a little more shading to the darker areas. Once that portion dried, I used 1 Hot Mama Creameez for the rest of her outfit the cute boots!

I used Shimmerz in Evergreen for the grass and the rain and puddles were Shimmerz Tickle Me Turquoise. I added a couple of rain drops so that it would be more realistic of Texas rainfall lol. Coffee Shimmerz was the perfect color for my little dog. To finish the card, I did a light wash with Steely Blue Inklings for the sky.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and if its rainy, wear your cute boots!
