Showers of Blessings & Labor Day Trivia

CedarvilleSignSm
I hope you’re enjoying the last of the “Summer” holidays, the last of the picnics…and you can thank James Kyle for your day off work. Lots of good things come from Ohio! *grin*


Here’s my card for our CCEE challenge…Frances has the month of September and started us out with a sketch.
9-7 Blessings of God I used this cute digital image from Sweet n’ Sassy Stamps called Showers of Blessing.*note, it's a digital image I downloaded and printed.

I paper pieced her dress by putting the printed image on my light table, putting the patterned paper on top and tracing. Then I just cut it out and glued it in place!

The image is colored with Copics and sponged with Faded Jeans distress ink. A Sakura Souffle gel pen was used for the rain. I sponged the greeting while it was still in the nestie… And of course I had to add some Swimming Pool Mudd Puddles sand ! The base layer is colored with a Copic marker to match the umbrella. *note! that's NOT Flower Soft! It's sand*

Great looking card - I like the flower soft at her feet! Interesting that you used a light table to paper piece the dress. I just stamp the image on the DP and cut out the dress or whatever.
