I made the background by stamping the lampost (from Tim Holtz) on some encaustic art card and embossing with black detail EP. I then used a shaving brush to dust on the yellow inks to create a glow around the lamp post. I used the same technique and shades of blue and black ink to create the dark sky and then used a wet paintbrush to lift some ink off to create a puddle which i then triple embossed with clear EP. Next I spritzed some water on my fingers and splashed it on the card, left it for a min and then blotted it with some kitchen roll to make the raindrops on the background. I used the same technique to make the base of the easel card.
KitKat is coloured with promarkers and then i added fur by colouring with derwent inktense pencils, its the first time i've combined promarkers and pencils and I think I need to practice lol. I decoupaged the umbrella up and added some drops of crystal laquer for raindrops, I dragged the drops with a cocktail stick to make them raindrop shaped.
I stamped the sentiment (from Elusive Images) on the base of the easel card and made a little umbrella embellie by colouring the top of another of Kitkats umbrellas, adding some raindrops and a handle made from a cocktail stick.
