Dancing In The Rain


Guess I was inspired by the lovely light spring rains we had this weekend.  I was trying to decide which House Mouse stamp I wanted to use and spotted the perfect one for the “Spring” challenge.  I stamped it in black and colored it with colored pencil.  I cut it out with a circle nestie and layered it on a green circle.  This is layered onto a yellow scalloped floral die, cut out with a Nellie Snellen die. 

I layered this on some great spring cardstock I found at Tuesday Morning.  It is so cute and with the little raindrops, it goes great with the House Mouse image.  This is layered on the same green cardstock as the circle and then onto a white card base.  I added a vellum butterfly sticker and two small white flowers with button centers.  I added some green jewels in two of the corners to add some bling and used a clear glaze pen on the raindrops in the image.
