Scrapping4fun Guest Designer - Anything Goes #40

Hello Everyone!

I'm very excited to be here today as the Guest Designer for Scrapping4fun Challenges! I was thrilled when Rachelle asked be to join in for this challenge and even more excited when she told me the theme is ANYTHING GOES WITH LACE OR RIBBON! I sure hope you will all join in the fun!

Sometimes being inspired for an anything goes theme can be tough, but not this time. I've been anxious to put together a canvas representing my take on A Rainy Day in the Spring, so I thought I would take the time to finally do it.


The background is completely covered with DecoArt Crackle Paint, then it was coloured with Ranger Dylusions Jade spray and Distress ink sprays Gathered Twigs, Walnut Stain, Brushed Corduroy and Scattered Straw. The bubble stencil, which reminds me of rain drops, is from Prima and I coated it with Copper embossing powder.


Variations of the same treatments were used for the butterfly from the Tim Holtz/ Sizzix Butterfly Duo die set. The stamp down the side is from the Tim Holtz/Stamper's Anonymous set Bird Feather. The script stamp is from the Urban Grunge stamp set.



The leaves are from Prima. I dusted them with Wendy Vecchi Tree Branch embossing powder and then sprayed them with Walnut Stain distress ink spray. The flowers were cut with a Joy Crafts Flower die set and I used the same colours on all three flowers, but in different variations, so I would get three flowers slightly different but the same. Colours are Jade, Cracked Pistachio, Tumbled Glass and Gathered Twigs.



The cameo and corner embellishment were made using crafter's clay and various molds. I used Ranger products Rock Candy crackle paint, alcohol ink Stream, Dylusions spray Jade and some Picket Fence paint to decorate them. The panel is cut from Spellbinders and I gave it one of my wood technique treatments.



I dusted the entire piece with a little white paint to give it a sort of misty feeling. In the spring, when it rains where I am, it's nothing but fog as far as the eye can see.



I am entering my Rainy Day Canvas into the following wonderful challenges:



Just a quick reminder to have a hop on over to ANYTHING BUT CUTE today and meet our next design team member! First challenge starts May 5th.

That's it for today. Thank you for stopping in and for all the amazing comments. I read and appreciate every single one! If you have any questions, please let me know.
