Rainy Day

hello crafty friends,

I'm back today with a tag showcasing the new Rainy Day die.   I love that with this die you get a little peeking sun.   For my tag, I started with two die cuts of the Rainy Day die.   I kept the peeking sun on the center cloud element, but trimmed it off the other cloud element.  I was going for the look of sun rays and did some water coloring on a watercolor paper tag.  I'm about 70% happy with the results :)

I first water colored the whole tag w/blues.  Next I added some yellows and oranges.  I added some yellow to my clouds, making them look as if the peeking sun was brightening them up.   I used some clear Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents on them as well.


Here's a close up of the clouds:

 
I'm going to try and make a large version of this tag in my art journal.  I will post the results when I'm done.  I hope you are enjoying seeing projects with our newest release.  Thanks for stopping bye and until next time.
