I saw this Stampedous image on a card whist searching for memory box images for ideas and fell in love with it. There is very little colouring to do as most of the image is black so I used promarkers to give the lady a red dress and matching shoes. I them fussy cut the image out.
The image comes with a lovely sentiment though it is rather close to the image and rather than cutting the stamp in two I managed some masking to enable me to stamp just the sentiment and fussy cut this to allow me to place elsewhere on my card.
I used the Memory Box splashing puddles die for my backgroud, I didn't want the puddles as they are a little too large for my couple to dance through, it just made me imagine that if they tried they would be in water waist deep and it would be like some sad slap-stick comedy. instead I used a cut out die-cut as a stencil to place my raindrops as although large they didn't look too big. Initially I coloured them red but went over them in black(again promarkers) as I thought the red looked a bit too much like it was raining blood.
I added some poppy stamps candy hearts again coloured in red promarker and randomly stuck them in-between the raindrops and added one to the sentiment too.
I finished the card by adding a darkroom 'happy anniversary' again in black.
I am quite happy how my card turned out and how I used my die in a different way too as I think the raindrops look far more random than I could have achieved freehand, and will definitely be doing this again.
