April Showers

"Singin' in the rain, just singin' in the rain..."

This month Die Cut Divas sponsor is Gina K Designs and the theme is April, check it out :

I covered the dots on the umbrella with Glossy Accents for resist, then coloured the umbrella a cheery red.  The background is watercoloured, salt crystals put on when it was wet to make it blotchy, then when it was dry I sponged white pigment ink over for clouds.  Die cut an oval hole in the rain-patterned card, adhere acetate behind the hole and surround the oval and edges with 3D foam tape to make a shaker which is filled with iridescent clear and silver sequins.  Puffy clouds and a wee stamped sentiment strip finish the card.

Umbrella Stamp: Gina K - Warm Spring Wishes
Oval die: Spellbinders
Cloud Dies:Memory Box
Sentiment Stamp: Fundamentals
Rainy backing: Don't know, given to me by a friend

Perfect background for an umbrella. I couldn't tell it was a shaker card from the DCD post, that's why I came here - to check it out further. Love the idea of a shaker card.
