When the rain begins to fall.

Hello everyone,

For the monthly ATC swap over at the Craftorij,  organised by Wini, I made these ATC's for the theme "rain".

I stamped the zebra on the ATC and on some masking paper. I then cut out the one on the masking paper and stuck it onto the one on the ATC. Next I stamped the drops over the top with Versamark ink and embossed it with white embossing powder. Still leaving the mask in place, I  took a blending tool and some Distress inks in greys and blues and coloured the background.
Next I took off the mask and coloured the zebra lightly with colour pencils. I then stamped the sentiment on a piece of separate card stock. I only used part of it. I cut it apart and coloured rainbow colours on the word 'rainbow', also using colour pencils. 
Lastly I glued the sentiment on the ATC. 

I used stamps from :
Katzelkraft, for the Zebra and the raindrops
Carabelle for the sentiment

Hopefully the recipients will like them. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today !
