I Want to Be Tall and Thin!

That's the challenge over at House Mouse & Friends this week! Make a tall and thin card!
Well, mine is not so thin, but you get the idea -- taller than a standard A2 card!

I chose this darling little Mudpie "Singing in the Rain" for my image today. I stamped the image in Palette Noir Black ink, then watercolored using reinkers and an aqua brush. The raindrops also have Crystal Effects (CE) on them, and the flowers have a touch of Diamond Stickles. The Posies Glitter Stack paper (DCWV) was perfect for a background. I used my slit punch for the scallops.

The sentiment by Close to My Heart (CTMH) is stamped in Lovely Lilac ink. My ribbon is so shimmery and is from Hobby Lobby, and the brads are by The Paper Studio (also Hobby Lobby).

Here you can see a close up of the image and the CE on the raindrops. My little nozzle is messed up, so I have to use another way to apply it, and it's a little messy. That just means the drops are rather splashy! :)
Thanks for stopping by today! If you play along, be sure to link your card to the post HERE.

Have a great day~
