Sunny London Days!

Oh boy, it is so hot here in London I couldn't sleep so I decided to get up and finish a card I started last night.

This card was inspired by the 'water' challenge at Addicted to CAS and the new challenge ran by my fellow DT members at InkspirationalRuth and Mynnette. This new challenge is called A House of Cards. Each week they challenge us to make a card using a different style but the same colour palette. This week it is the CAS week. I wanted to try out my new 'glossy accents' from SU-I have added these to the rain drops and the top of the umbrella to give the appearance of water. It as really hard to photograph this so that you could see this 'rain water' look so I have included 2 photos so you can hopefully get the idea.

I think you can see the rain look more in the second photo but I had to take this at an angle so it looks kinda wonky!

Time for a morning cuppa, Have a great sunny Sunday x

Here is the colour palette for HOC


  1. LOVE this, Sandie. Your raindrops covered in the glossy accents are awesome. That sentiment is very cool. Thanks so much for playing along at ATCAS xx
