There Is No Bad Weather

Have you ever heard the saying ‘there is no bad weather, just inappropriate clothing’, or something like that? I guess that we’re officially in that phase of the year. In the fall here in Vancouver, we’re very used to dressing in layers. Because in the morning it can be very chilly, and/or raining. But by mid day, you need to strip off a layer or two because the rain has stopped, the sun has come out, and it’s near summer temperatures!Β  Ah, the west coast! We have it all, and sometimes all in one day *wink*. Today’s card reflects the chillier part of the weather.

SWEATER WEATHER

This is the Jill Girl stamp from Picket Fence Studios. I love the cozy sweater, complete with knitted scarf and matching mittens.

There Is No Bad Weather

I pulled out my alcohol markers to colour this image.

CARD DETAILS

First stamp the image onto smooth white cardstock in Nocturne ink. Next, colour with your favourite markers and colours. I used a combination of Copic and Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers; all colours are listed in my shopping links at the bottom of this post. After colouring, place the Taylored Expressions Masking Rectangle on top of the image, creating a mask over it. Next, use a blending tool to apply Broken China Distress Oxide ink around the image. This gives you a layered look, without an additional layer of cardstock.

For the sentiment, die cut a piece of red cardstock with the Birch Press Designs Handwritten Just a Note & Outline Die, with the Big Shot. Attach the card front to a dark red card base, with foam tape or fun foam layer. Next, attach the sentiment with liquid glue. Finally, add a few Nuvo Cherry Hearts Gemstones to the card front.

There Is No Bad Weather

In these continued days of ‘distancing’, this is a great card to send to any of your friends that you haven’t seen in person, in a while.

SUPPLIES

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a card, painting or other project - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you create with me! :)

  1. Hola, Deb! Great card! πŸ’— God help me if I ever have to dress like that because it’s so cold here. haha haha Your friend Mari is pretty lame with cold weather as are most San Antonians . haha haha I am a shorts and chanclas (flip-flops) kinda girl. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I joke. I imagine it’s nice to dress like that sometimes. Girl, the hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico is affecting our weather. We’re going to be 98*F this weekend. Yikes! Anyway, I hope you are having a great day, Deb. πŸ’œ Back to laundry. Lucky me.

    1. Yeah, your part of the world doesn’t get this kind of weather does it, Mari?! You need a whole 2nd wardrobe for winter πŸ™‚
