It's Raining

 Oh my poor blog...it's been far too neglected!  I love, love, love running eclectic Paperie but I do miss having more time to craft!  I'm trying to actually schedule some time so I can set aside a quiet (quiet?  I love with two young boys...there's no such thing as quiet! LOL!) time to just have fun.  Last week I had that opportunity to decided to create a few cards for the 200th CAS challenge on Splitcoast (you can still play along!).

One of the posted challenges was to create a card using the Dazzling Diamond Dust technique.  This is a technique where you cover a complete colored and stamped image with VersaMark ink and then emboss with iridescent ice embossing powder.  The embossing powder makes the colors really pop.  Love the look!
The stamp I used is from Sweet Stamp Shop and is called It's Raining.  I love the image with the set but I think I love the sentiment even more.  It's just perfect encouragement for someone going through a hard time.  Sometimes there isn't much to say but offering our support of just being there is helpful.

Enjoy and find some time to make art today!
