I've found a little time this afternoon to have a play and decided I felt like I needed more practice at colouring with my ProMarkers. I still only have about a quarter of the colours so still struggle a bit with blending as I don't have many colours that work together.
I also had a play with an unused stamp. This is an unmounted stamp by S.w.a.l.k. so I needed to get this mounted first before I could use it. I got in a bit of a sticky mess with my EZ Mount but got there in the end!
I stamped the image and coloured it in with ProMarkers before cutting out with a rectangular die. I then chose some patterned paper and die cut it with a flag die, ensuring that the diagonal stripes were running in the same direction as the raindrops on the image. I finished with a simple sentiment. This was originally the finished card but I then spotted the challenge sketch at Seize the Sketch and realised I could enter this card if I added something to the top right corner. After a rummage in my stash I came up with a twist of ribbon, held together with a flower head brad, in colours to match the rest of the design.
