The Rainy Season

Frogs and Splashes

Where I live it gets so hot and humid that in the summer, that it just has to rain for a few minutes to get it out of its system. Sometimes it even rains with the sun shining.

This card was made as a test of my new die called “Splashing Puddles” by Memory Box. It reminded me of the light rain and the tree frogs chanting.

I began with a stripe printed card as the base. I die cut the puddles and placed washi tape on the back of the raindrops and then sprinkled blue glitter on the front sticky side to make them sparkle. The frogs I had left over from another card, so added them hopping about in the rain. The “Hi” sentiment I picked because it was tiny and seemed to fit into the design best. I spotted it with the tips of markers just as I had colored the frogs but tried to match the raindrops in color. The final touch was some gold foiled washi tape I found in my stash.

Hope the card brings a smile to you.
