Sunday Stamps- 125

I am not gonna lie, it was a rough week.  So I am sooooo glad the weekend is here and will be using this Sunday for R&R.  BUT, before I do, I have a nice uplifting card to share with you for this week's Sunday Stamps Challenge #125.

Here is the image we are working with:


Here is my take:



I thought it would be fun to see what happens when I added distress inks to glossy paper.  This is the result.  It clearly didn't blend as well, but still looks like a stormy sky to me.  I used a cloud template to add some layers.  The challenge is to pick a minimum of 3 colors and a neutral.  Admittedly, I got my peach color wrong, not sure what I was thinking.  In addition to that I used a couple of blues- all TIm Holtz products.  Then I stamped my sentiment from MFT.  I went back and added embossing tat looked like raindrops with and SU! folder.  Lastly, I cut this windmill die out from Top Dog Dies (sad when they closed the doors). 

I had a lot of fun making this. 

Now head on over to Sunday Stamps to see all the other inspiration. 

Entering this into: 




Thanks for stopping, I hope you have the day off and are enjoying it!
