No Clouds, No Rainbows

This card was made for Live Love Cards Encouragement Cards for Foster Children.  I love making these cards because they are fun to do.

This card was inspired by a technique I was trying that I saw on Stamp Nation using Faber Castell Gelatos and stencils.  I applied several colors of blue gelatos and blended them with my fingers.  Then used a Hero Arts Stencil (Waves) and sponged water onto the stencil.  It removes the color and it ended up looking like wind.  So I went on from there to finish the card.

I used:

  • Hero Arts My Monthly Hero February 2017 for the sentiment and the rain.  I embossed the rain drops with Hero Arts Sparkle Clear Embossing powder.  For the inside of the card I painted a rainbow and used another stamp from the Hero Art’s set, “Learn to Dance in The Rain”
  • Stampendous Spring Short Stack stamp set.

Welcome to my blog. I started my blog so that I could share all of the things that I am passionate about not only in the creative world but in all areas of my life. I retired over 10 years ago from the field of education. I was a Resource Specialist in a Teacher's Resource Library. My job allowed me to do the things I love every day. I love creating things with many different media. Papercrafting is my favorite. I helped teachers create bulletin boards and instructional materials for their classrooms. Now that I am retired I spend a lot of time creating cards and I love all of the different techniques and media available. I also am very active in wildlife conservation and spend many hours volunteering with the Wildlife Conservation Network.
