FYI – Chase the Gloomies Away

It is time for another For Your Inspiration challenge. Check out the latest challenge -> FYI27. This challenge is sponsored by The Cutting Cafe.

This photo is so dramatic! I love the dark clouds in the background with the lighthouse still in the sun. I decided to go with the rain theme.

I used lots of shades of grey – and touches of color. I stamped the umbrella and galoshes on white paper so their white would pop.

While I did use two grey papers, this card is done with only one grey ink! The clouds and umbrella handle are generation impressions (the dark cloud is after stamping off once, the small cloud twice and the umbrella handle 3 times).

Thanks for taking a peek!

  1. Karen, this is such a fun and fabulous take on the picture – the gorgeous yellow dotty umbrella would definitely brighten a wet gloomy day! Great use of the grey ink-pad too!
    Have a happy weekend – Sylvia x
