Dance in the Rain

While having a bit of a sort out of my working space I gathered together a selection of bits and pieces, experiments with gelli plate, odd bits of stamped images and of course the usual scraps of paper and card so before consigning them to the 'bits boxes' I thought I'd make a couple of cards using some of them.  This one is quite appropriate for the 'summer' weather we are having today - grey and wet at the moment!!  Background is one of the gelli plate experiments, over-inked with Distress inks and then stamped using the lovely water droplets stamp from Designs by Ryn.  The words were produced on the computer and cut out using a Sizzix framelits set (Stampin' Up).  I didn't think I wanted to cover up any more of the background so left the card fairly simple.  Off now to complete the sorting out so that I have space in which to work and who knows I may find some more treasures to use on something else.


  1. A gorgeous card Val, and very appropriate for the weather today. I love the gelli plate background, I've bought the gelli plate but not used it yet.

  2. Very effective with those water drops & I love the sentiment with this - lovely positioning with your die fitting the words into the diagonally opposite corners.

  10. Fab sentiment Val, I agree so appropriate for our Summer. Also love the droplets. Great card. xx Flora

  11. How weird.... I ordered the water droplets last night! Great minds think alike eh? hehe. Gorgeous card and love the background with the lovely white space around the sentiment. Haven't been tempted down the gelli plate route you think it's worth it?
