1) I wanted to use my new Julie Balzer stencil.
2) I wanted to dig out my Glimmer Mists.
I stamped the background with some text for texture then layered on several colors of Glimmer Mist. Once that dried I traced the rain drops from the stencils and hand painted them in with acrylics. I'm really enjoying the act of painting. It's one of the great things I love about stencile. You can trace them and hand paint the insides.
This Tim Holtz stamp is one of my favorites. I used Decopage to glue down both the tag and help adhere the tissue tape. Although the Decopage is matte, I didn't realize it would change the sheen of the background to be so noticeable. I like how it turned out anyway.
