Singing in the Rain

 
Welcome and thanks for peeking in.  Today's card was inspired by the challenge at Splitcoast yesterday.  I wanted to get a chance to play with my new die so set off to make a card.
 
I began by creating the blue panel with Distress inks.  I rubbed Salty Ocean, Peacock Feather and Broken China Distress inks onto my acrylic block, sprayed with water and stamped onto my cardstock.  I just kept inking and stamping until all the white areas were covered.  Love the watery feel and the drips look like drops of rain. 
I popped the die cut on top of that and lined the panel with a black strip then added the sentiment.
 
Also adding my card to these challenges:

  1. Beautiful , Karen !! When you write : rubbed in , what do you mean with it ? Do you use a sponge ? I try to make such cards sometimes , but they never turn out very well , so help is needed ... Anita

  2. I thought for sure this card was for Less Is More. Their challenge is "Singing in the Rain" and I'm sure it would be a winner over there.
