A Rainy Day!

Good morning everyone,
I have been staying with my sister for a few days which has been lovely, we included a trip to the Hobbycraft show at the  NEC on Thursday, which was great fun.  As well as all the stalls, it is lovely to meet up with crafty friends.

It is definitely a rainy day here isn Norfolk, so I thought this card from the last set of samples for the TV was appropriate!

It is made using two stencils from Clarity.
I started by brayering some blue ink onto a Gelli Plate, then I threw some water on the plate picked it up with a piece of white card.
I stencilled the lovely lady in place, using several colours of blue to get the shading. Once I was happy with her, I removed the stencil and added some 'ground' for her to be standing on.
The strip down the side is down on a separate piece of card, just sponging though the umbrella stencil, using the same blue inks.
I matted it all on purple card

Hope you like it
Thanks for visiting and hope you all had a great time at the NEC if you went
