For a Rainy Day

We have had so much rain this summer and some really wild thunderstorms lately. Yesterday was one of those rain-soaked summer days. What better way to spend part of the day then coloring an adorable image?

For my birthday in June, my husband gave me 5 of my favorite stamps from the Victoria Case for SCACD Hearts & Hugs Collection. These images are really just so gorgeous with tons of detail. I have to say they are a challenge to color for me. Of the 5 I received, Singing in the Rain is one of the easier ones to color. She is just so fun with her cute polka dot raincoat.

Normally, I color my images and then scramble to find papers that match. This time I picked my paper first — from DCWV Nana’s Kids — and went from there. I have to say it made things so much easier. The papers from Nana’s Kids are so much fun — many of them are embossed, as is this one. Because I wanted to focus on the image and the dp, I kept the layout really simple. I added some Crystal Effects to the umbrella and puddles.
