Weather Forecast At FSC

Fashionable Stamping Challenges this fortnight have a theme of  “Weather Forecast” which was picked by my fabby teemie sister Claire.

I smiled when I saw this challenge and also thought OMG what am I going to do.  Then I remembered my raindrop stamps, first saw these type of stamps on Dots blog.  (Ashamed to say my set was bought can you believe nearly six months ago but never seen the light of day until now.)

The background doily is from Do-crafts which the girl was stamped directly onto.

Totally in love with the raindrops (now they are out of their packaging) which were coloured in before adding the Glossy Accents.

The larger raindrops were made by using a mask from Creative Expressions called … wait for it … Raindrops and a dimensional paste.  When dry Glossy Accents was dripped over the top.  Other stamps are from PaperArtsy here and here plus the DI Ripe Persimmon was caressed over the top.

I would love it if you hopped on over to see all the DT’s work as they are simply stunning.  Also don’t forget that the winner of this challenge has $20 to choose anything they like from Flonz’s store.

    What a great theme for a challenge! Your card is beautiful, I love your clever use of the girl stamp and umbrella man. I too have the raindrops stamp and have never inked it up either…. must rectify that! Hugs, Anne xx

    Great layering of the stamps for a beautiful scene. It seems raindrops (especially Ryn’s designs) are all the rage! Love the glossy accent finish too!

    Gorgeous design Shirley, I love what you’ve done with the rain drops! Your design suits our weather here, it’s raining heavy this morning… and so dreary and cold… ugh. A good day to stay in and start crafting. Take care, Shirleyxx

    Wow Shirl, fabulous raindrops!!! That’s so cleverly done by combining these stamped raindrops with the ones from your mask! Love the touch of glossy on top of them too.. And the little girl is so lovely. Gorgeous card. Hugs Coco xx

    Absolutely lovely card, Shirley! I love how you’ve combined the girl and the raindrops (I’ve been admiring them from afar from ages, but fear I’d be as bad as you for not getting round to inking them up!), and I love the warm colours and beautiful tinting. Always love Umbrella Man too! Sorry to have missed so much, but I’m looking forward to getting back into the swing of visiting.
