Raindrops on Roses...

... and whiskers on kittens.
Are you singing along?

Today I'm sharing my card with you, as Guest Designer for
Huge thanks to the DT girls over there, for the opportunity.

Can you tell from my card what the theme is?

I have taken a subtle approach to the theme - 
due to the fact I don't have any rainy day type stamps -
 and used clear, dew drops as my 'rain'.

I'm also chuffed that I stretched out my inks on this card,
and used only 2 purples and 2 greens.
I'm not sure what the technique is called, but if you ink up your rose
and then stamp it, ink it again and stamp onto scrap paper,
then stamp your rose layer, you get 2 shades from your ink.
Does that make sense to you?  :-)

I hope you'll play along with the challenge this week.

Altenew Vintage Roses.   Memento, Ink, New Sprout and Bamboo Leaves.
