Rain or Shine.....

Hello everyone: I'm back for a second post today but this time my card is for the CASology  "Weather" challenge. It took me a while to figure out what kind of card to create that was weather related until I remember I had this cute Stampin Up! set called "In this Together" so I picked this image to make my card.

I love all of the images on this set, this girls are very stylish and elegant and it makes really pretty cards for women, young and "old".
I stamped the image onto Canson water color paper with Stazon Jet Black ink and colored with SU markers and the aqua painter. The clouds were die cut with a set I think it's from Cherry Lynn but I'm not totally sure. Then,  I needed to create some rain so I started fiddling with a pencil on a scrap piece of paper, trying to make little drops.....well, needless to say, it was a big flop. Then I thought maybe I could just kind of draw straight lines to resemble rain but that was a second big flop and then the fabulous and totally underestimated (at least by me.....sometimes) Gorgeous Grunge stamp set from SU came into my mind and I knew I had what I needed to make rain. I stamped the "rain" with silver ink from a pad that it's kind of dry but that was fine because I also used it to sponge some dark sky and the clouds
Here is a picture of the finished inside.

Here is the Cue Card that inspired mine.

Here's the picture of the sets I used.

Forgive the blue background, I had a hard time taking this pictures.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

Weather can irk me, since it's rarely a beautiful day here. Or so I feel that way! The rain came out perfect and it doesn't seem to phase these pretty girls in the least! Great card!
