(2015 c26) Spring Showers THoltz & Unity Stamps

Today’s  card featuresOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Tim Holtz umbrella man from PURELY RANDOM Clear Stamps Set css27843.  The cloud was made by combining LuminArte Powdered pigments Majestic Blue and then added Wine and Roses to achieve the deeper stormy cloud color with Golden Molding Paste an applied with a spatula, For the rain I used Tim Holtz’s Dot Fade THS006.  The sun was applied with Gold Metalic Creative Medium by Imagine Crafts. to Tim Holtz’s Stencil Rays THS003. The path was drawn with Pitt Pen and then applied Matte Medium by Claudine Helmuth and sprinkled Perfectfx Lilac Mica  Flakes for the cobblestone path, Looks like a rainy day in England to me.   The flowers were stamped on tissue paper with Unity Stamp Co. set called Dream To Be.  I used Claudine Helmuth Studio Gesso Artist Quality Primer to paint the back side of all the flowers & then colored the petals on the front with Copic Markers so the color would be bright since tissue was applied to the dark paper with Matte Medium by Claudine Helmuth. Last step was to mix Key Lime LuminArte Powdered pigments with Golden Molding Paste  again and applied the grass  around the  foreground.
