It's a little gloomy today with lots of rain and clouds, so I decided to pull out my *new* Stormy Sky Distress Oxide Ink and my Happy Girl stamps.
This is my first time experimenting with "no line coloring", but it seemed appropriate here and I ended up loving it so much! I used My Favorite Things Grout Hybrid ink and it was perfect.

The latest Distress Oxide release from Tim Holtz contains so many of my favorite colors! This Stormy Sky is perfect for the cloudy sky, and was the starting idea for this card. I pulled out my Grout Hybrid ink from MFT and started experimenting with no line coloring using Copic markers. This method of coloring turned out to be much more fun than I imagined!
I fussy cut the happy girl and layered the image over a vellum heart cut from the Simon Says Stamp Wonky Hearts die set. Next, I die cut the little cloud then traced the edges with the new Heidi Swapp fine tip glue pen. Using my Minc, I foiled the cloud to give it a silver lining ;) using Heidi Swapp's Iridescent foil. After foiling, I stamped the sentiment without the "rainbow", then stamped the word "rainbow" using Versamark ink so that I could heat emboss on top. The cloud is popped up with foam adhesive.
To finish off the card I added some ribbon and little gems.
Thanks for stopping by!
