Thinking Happy Thoughts of You - Rain Background Idea

Hello from design team member, Heidi!  

I created a fun background depicting a warm summer rain.  This was done by first smooshing blue Distress Oxide inks onto my craft mat and spritzing it with water.  I then took a piece of acetate packaging and dipped the edge into the pool of ink.  I was able to apply the ink across just one portion of my cardstock.  Repeat until you get the look you like.

I stamped the Girl with Umbrella Silhouette right over my “rain” with black Distress Oxide ink.  This stamp is so cute, I just like the whimsical look of the whole card.

Hope you have a wonderful day!


  1. Gosh that black DO ink gives great coverage. Love the effect of your smooshing technique Heidi!

    1. Thanks, Wendy. They really are great stamping inks in addition for use with backgrounds.

  2. Great technique to add the ink where you want. Cute card.

  3. I love this, Heidi! The rain is perfect with 'thus stamp!

  4. A timely card with all of the rain we've been having! Very cute too! What a clever way to make "rain".
