Sparkle in the Rain by Alison Hall


Hello Everyone! I have a bright and colourful stencilled postcard to share with you today, featuring the lovely Visible Image Brolly Lady.

Here's what I used...

Visible Image Clear Stamp Sets - Background Noise, Sparkle in the Rain
That's Crafty! Dinky Stencils - Teardrop Ovals, Bubbly All Over, Chevrons Background, Raindrops Background, Abstract Stones Background
Dina Wakley Media Heavy Body Acrylic Paint - Cheddar, Fuchsia, Ocean, Gilt, Black
Stencil Brush
Fan Paintbrush

Here's what I did...

1. Using the Abstract Stones, Chevrons Background, and Bubbly All Over Dinky Stencils with the cheddar, Fuchsia & Ocean paints, I stencilled a background all over the postcard. I stencilled the Teardrop Ovals using the Fresh Lime paint, and finished off by stencilling some Raindrops Background with the Gilt paint.

2. Using the Archival Jet Black Ink, I used the Visible Image Background Noise Stamp Set to stamp a background.

3. I stamped the Brolly Lady and phrase from Sparkle in the Rain with Onyx Versafine Ink, then clear embossed the images.

4. To finish, I used the ink blending foam tool to ink the edges of the postcard with Jet Black Archival Ink, then added a dotty splatter all over, with the fan brush and some watered down black paint.

Happy crafting,

Alison x
