Singing In The Rain... by Sara

Hello friends! We are continuing our year of song themes, and our April Dare is to challenge you to create a project that is inspired by music, rain, water or the song below!

Click the link below to listen to the song that inspired this challenge.

Hello Hello ! I'm so happy to be joining you today! When I thought about  this month's theme, "Singing In The Rain", I thought about what I like to do when it rains...craft of course! In the climate I live in, April means LOTS of rain, but it also means spring is here, and spring means butterflies. Soooo...I went with a fun wall hanging of a butterfly with lots of colors that remind me of spring rain!

My project started with a cut file. I cut it from heavy white cardstock on my Silhouette. I also cut a shadow layer to place behind my butterfly to make it POP off of my weathered wood plank.
Once I had my file cut, the fun can begin. I used my favorite embossing ink to ink up sections of my butterfly and applied lots of different embossing powders. I overlapped some and let them melt into each other. I applied two coats to areas that seemed a bit "thin". I just kept adding layers till I was happy with the results and no white showed.

Once I had my butterfly completely embossed, I adhered the butterfly to the shadow layer and then to the weathered wood plank. Now to add some final textural touches!

I added some of the fabulous natural stones from the shop to create details on the butterfly. (linked below)

Lastly, I watered down some heavy body acrylic paint and splattered on some for added effect.

Thank you so much for joining me today! I hope the next rainy day that comes your way inspires you to create something beautiful!

Have A Lovely Day!
