Post 144: Card (Showers of love)

Hi friends :) 

Thanks a bunch for visiting me here today! I hope you had a great weekend. 
Today, I'd like to share a love themed card with a "shower of love". 
This is a side folding A2 size card.

Synopsis of the Process:

Did some ink blending of distress inks to incorporate the rainbow colors. Then did some more light ink blending to color the die cuts. Adhered the die cuts to the panel and stamped the hearts in red ink to look like the cloud of love is raining down hearts onto the couple. The couple is represented by the blue and pink umbrellas in the drink. Stamped the sentiment "love" on the cloud by partially inking one of the light bulb stamps in the PS stamp set. Die cut the ink blended panel with a scalloped stitched rectangle die and then adhered it to the card base with the frame in the opposite direction for interest. Adhered 3 transparent droplets to show water and as embellishments. Also, added red stickle dots to the hearts. 

List of Supplies:

1. Paper Smooches Perpetual Bliss Stamp Set 
2. Paper Smooches Free Spirits Icons Dies
3. Ranger's Distress Mini Inkpads- festive berries, carved pumpkin, mustard seed, cracked pistachio, peacock feathers, chipped sapphire, picked raspberry and wilted violet 
4. Ranger's round blending tool and foams
5. Glossy Accents
6. Tombow mono multi glue
7. DCAM transparent drops
8. Altenew ruby red dye ink
9. Ranger's arhival ink- jet black
10. Gina Marie Designs stitched scallop frame die 
11. DCAM double stitched clouds die
12. Snippets of white cardstock for die cutting
