Brighter Days

Took a moment to play with my new goodies today!

To create the clouds I first masked the card base then brushed on a base layer of Distress Oxide Salty Ocean. Then I stenciled the clouds by using Salty Ocean and Faded Jeans before spattering with a touch of water.  Once that was dry, I stenciled the sun rays.

I wanted lots of yellow so decided to paper-piece the umbrella with a fun dotty paper; I did create some shading with Copics on it. Next I colored up rest of the image along with a couple of adorable ducks. Soooo cute! I added a diecut strip of grass but left it white for simplicity.

I'm entering this in MFT Sketch #379, Inkspirational 158 Rain, Addicted to Stamps and More #286 Anything Goes

The Details:  MFT Rain or Shine, Puddle Jumper, Mini Cloud Stencil, and Radiating Rays, Distress Oxides, Doodlebug Springtime 6x6 Paper, Copics, Lawn Fawn Grassy Border die


  1. I love how you've done the clouds above the sun and I love the paper-piecing - love it all! Thank you for joining us at Inkspirational Challenges.

  2. The composition on your card is amazing, with the stormy clouds/sunny rays split panel, Toni! Perfect canvas for the adorable little girl and ducklings. The polka dot umbrella? Yes please! So thrilled to see you in the Inkspirational gallery!


Thanks so much for your comments. I really enjoy and appreciate them all!
