I seldom get around to playing in the Mix-Ability Challenge on Splitcoaststampers, but the raindrop drawing technique shared by Lydia had me intrigued! I started with this scrap of textured CS where I had used gold embossing paste with a Tim Holtz burlap stencil. I white embossed the flower and leaves on the rough side of Tim Holtz watercolor paper, then scribbled some watercolor pencils and blended with an aquapainter. I fussy cut and popped them over some looped jute twine. My white gel pen did NOT want to cooperate (I have 2 pens and neither of them ever work right!). I drew the raindrops using a Copic 0.3 multiliner black pigment ink pen and tried to add the white gel highlights. I felt like it looked like two bedbugs on my card...UNTIL...I added an ancient dew drop from my archives to the large drop and a wee bit of Glossy Accents to the smaller drop. So...here's the finished card...
Here's what I used:
STAMPS: Peony Scrolls by Altenew.
ACCESSORIES: Jen Hadfield tag by Pebbles from Simon Says Stamp; Tim Holtz Burlap stencil; Wendy Vecchi Metallic Gold embossing paste; Jute twine, Dew drop, Glossy Accents.
