Mists, Drizzles, and Showers

It's the last week of April's theme and the B team is up again.

This week I pasted, stenciled color and misted (is that a word) my idea.

Start with LJ908 Umbrellas:
On a grey piece of paper lightly stencil navy blue ink around edges of the umbrellas.  Clean.  On a piece of white paper paste with White Matte Paste (Red Label).  Let dry.

While this is drying takeLG738 Rain Words:

Paste with blue glossy paste on white paper.  Let Dry.

Finally dry emboss LL3029 Dog then stencil color over him. 
I used Ranger Distress inks.

Once the pasted umbrellas are dry, replace the stencil and add color to umbrellas.

Mist lightly over the top with Memories Mist Blue Martini (I got a bit heavy with mine).

Cut out umbrellas, attach to grey using the navy stencils color as a road map.  Add 3d foam mounting tap on some to make it more dimensional.  Start at the top of the card.

Before you finish the lower edge, place dog where you want on card.  Add 3 layers of foam tape on his umbrella. 

Cut out words and attach to card.  Done! 

Don't forget to check out the rest of the team and make sure to check out Alison Heikkila our guest artist this month!  Hope you are playing along!  You are my inspiration!!!

Stay tuned for next months theme!                                           Till then, stenciled trails to you!
