Dancing On A Rainy Day

I'm back with another post on the third day in a row as I have quite a few things to show you over the next few days having had a productive crafting session and managed to finish off a few things that have been hanging around.
This one is my attempt at a recessed window card which Jacqueline kindly shared a tutorial on making on Make My Monday a few weeks back. If you like the look which I have to say is easier to do than you might think, you'll find the tutorial HERE.

The card is made from a piece of decorated paper from a Chocolate Baroque CD - I think it's called Filigree Fusion - and was printed on to 230gsm card. You need it to be fairly sturdy but not too thick.
I've used my absolute favourite Tim Holtz text stamp as I think the sentiment behind it is so inspiring. I stamped this with VersaFine Crimson Red.
I then stamped the gorgeous Umbrella Lady by Lost Coast Designs with VersaFine Imperial Purple, cut her out and adhered her with foam tape.

Challenges for my card:
Lollipop Crafts - A Card /Project With No Embellishments
Victorine Originals - April Showers
The Cheerful Stamp Pad - Anything Goes
Crafting For All Seasons - April Showers

Hoping that those of you suffering somewhat adverse weather conditions for the time of year are managing to cope and are keeping warm.
Hugs, Fliss xx
