Into every life a little rain must fall......

Good morning my lovelies, hope you're having a good week. I'm making the most of my week off and catching up on lots of jobs (and crafting too lol) so before I go and tackle today's list here's a card made using the beautiful Fantasy Castles from Chocolate Baroque. I love this castle image I combined it with the cloud stamps from Magical Landscapes to create a rainy scene.

I coloured the image with distress markers and used Walnut Stain distress ink around the edges of the image. I matted it up on some dark brown card and layered it up over square of card with a brick effect made using a Crafters Workshop Template and distress inks. Again I matted on brown card and layered up over a more muted background made with more distress inks and a brick stamp from Abstract Fragments. The sentiment is on of my all time favourites and is from Loving Sentiments. To finish of I've added a little seam binding bow and an umbrella charm from my stash.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Aud Sentiments: anything goes with a sentiment
Country View Crafts: paperchase
Crafty Hands: buttons and bows
Cards and More:  Non Cute
Pink Elephant: lots of layers, ribbon and a pinch of green

Thanks for calling by today, hope to see you again soon

  1. Bad move on my part Claire, I pondered over this stamp set when I saw Shirleys post earlier in the week, now I have seen your gorgeous card there is no doubt I am in urgent need of the set.

  3. I love the way the brickwork echoes the bridge-like battlements & the roofs of the turrets. The cloudy sky has amazing dimension & I love the little umbrella charm - a very thoughtful touch in the whole design. The seam binding echoes the river water beautifully.
