Rain Inspired

Saturday morning and I am playing along with the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast that is from a Pinterest board inspired by rain.  (photo below)  Rain would be such a welcome site considering all the snow we still have.
I thought of the Brush set from Hero Arts that includes many images like splatters and splats that look like puddles so, I got that set out and stamped the images then embossed them with white embossing powder on my card front.  I rubbed Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters, Broken China and Salty Ocean Distress inks over the piece then stamped the large Tweed Hero Arts Bkg. stamp that I dipped into water over that.  Love the depth you can achieve by stamping with water.  I also flicked and splattered water onto the ink for the effect of raindrops.  I then cut my piece into pieces for interest and added the Penny Black sentiment.  The inside says, "Thanks so very much for the birthday gift!"
I am adding my card to the HERO ARTS Birthday Challenge- Anything Goes

I so appreciate you dropping in and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps- Penny Black, Hero Arts/ Distress inks/ white embossing powder/ Bl. Memento ink
