Spring Rain in Paris






for Kraft Journal's spring cards and There she goes stamp kraft cardstock.

I've used shimmer spray to get the rain effect. The flower is the same type I made for the Tuesday trigger a few weeks ago - die cut flowers from 20 sheets of silk paper. Then I almost drenched it in spray which caused the "petals" to curl up - which I think gave it a really nice look and when it all dried the flower was golden and much harder than before - which was a great effect (and great if you're planning to send your card by mail) and I will definately be making more flowers like this for my cards in the future.


Have a great week, hugs Karin
