Live the Life

Here I'm using a Gelli print as raindrops.  I loved the print as it turned out but it had a lot going on as you can see from the snippets so I selectively die cut my fav bits. I also like the purples against the lemongrass paper, an unusual choice for me.

I started by stamping the silhouette and sentiment--this comes from a TH set that I'd had so long without using it that I put it in this summer's garage sale.  Good thing it didn't sell!  Next I stenciled some vertical lines using Distress Oxide. Glue on those raindrops then trim to size = fab!

I'm entering this in Shopping Our Stash #366 Silhouettes, Simon Says Wednesday Distress It

The Details:  Tim Holtz Life's Possibilities, vertical lines stencil, dotty stencil, TCW Rain stencil, Liquitex Acrylic Paints, Versafine Onyx Black, Flavours Gourmet Lemongrass cardstock, Distress Oxide Wilted Violet


  1. Beautiful card here with all the silhouette stamping and vertical lines. The attention to detail is intense on this card. Thank you so much for joining us on Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. xx Ankita

  2. Lovely card! The umbrella man is one of my favorite TH dies. You gave him a fun presentation! Thanks for playing along with us this week at Shopping Our Stash!
