A fun challenge at Digi's with Attitude!

Time for a new challenge at Digi's with Attitude! and this week we want to see you make it rain! This week's challenge theme is to make some raindrops, so you could use a rainy day image, a raindrop shaped card or maybe you have your own ideas for making some raindrops. This week my GDT card features the gorgeous KitKat (you can find her here in the Digi's with Attitude! store)

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.

I'm entering KitKat in the following challenges:
Fab'n'Funky: Animal Magic

Thanks for calling by, I can't wait to see how you are going to make some raindrops for this weeks challenge at Digi's with Attitude!
