PCC237 - Sketch Challenge with Hero Arts Fun in the Rain

Hello all! Hope your mid-week is going well!   I am so so proud of myself!  I actually made a card that is soooooo very close to this week's Paper Craft Crew Sketch!  lol  I usually take some artistic liberties but this time I really stayed on task.  I loved this sketch so much I actually made three cards with it.  Don't worry.. I only blogged one of them!  lol  

I had so much fun with the Hero Arts "Fun In the Rain" stamp set on this card.  This animals are just adorable!   What do you think?

I started off with a Dapper Denim cardstock base that was 11" x 4 1/4" (scored at 5 1/2").  My next layer was 5 1/4" x 4" Neenah Crest Solar White 80# cardstock layer.  I used my distress ink blending tool to blend in somd Broken China and Faded Jeans Distress Inks.  After blending, I spritzed it with water and then dabbed it with a paper towel.  My clouds are Hero Arts Infinity Cloud Dies.  I used my Stampin' Up! Triple Banner Punch to punch banner ends on my Real Red Cardstock 3/4" x 3 1/2" banner.  The mat for the square is Dapper Denim and the top square is more of the Neenah Crest Solar White 80# cardstock.  Both the square and scallop mat were cut with Stampin' Up! Layering Square Dies.  I masked the bottom of the square off  and then ink blended it with Broken China Distress Ink .  I stamped the rain in with Faded Jeans Distress Ink,  Both the adorable bear and pig were stamped onto Bristol Smooth Cardstock with Black Versafine Ink and colored in with Zig Clean Color Markers.  

I wanted the inside to be blank to write a note but of course I had to decorate it a bit.  This little duck in the set seemed perfect and took very little coloring. :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings, Tina
