Challenge card - Water Water Everywhere


This card is for a challenge on Crafts By Carolyn forum. The challenge is called Water Water Everywhere and had to have a water theme (obviously!).

I used a stamp of a rag doll (Azadi Earles which is no longer trading I think - from comments I found on Ebay) with umbrella, which I stamped with red ink and heat embossed with clear powder. I decoupaged the umbrella but it is hard to tell from the first photo so I have added another that shows it better. The umbrella was coloured with Sakura Gelly Roll pens. The sentiment is a Debbie Moore stamp.

The outer acrylic card has "rain drops" made with Diamond glaze and a puddle the doll is standing in.

I finished the card with some gingham ribbon and a ribbon tag (MM).

Now does anyone think I could give this card to my Mum for her birthday this month (May), or are we in Summer officially now?

When I started assembling this card and decided to use a ribbon tag I thought I would take some photos for a possible article for the next free e magazine from PCJ. I set up the tag curler in lots of stages and took the photos, and finished the card. Then I found out I hadn't got the memory card in my camera so didn't have any of the photos - silly me! Had to start again!
