So it made me think of how we view the rain. If we want to go somewhere, or it’s been raining for a while, we’re more than happy to see it leave. But it really depends on what we want to do or need.
Most of your probably already know this little cutie is by Mo Manning. I love how her images have so much expression in their faces. I’ve had her colored for months now, I just couldn’t decide what I wanted to do with her.
I do love black, white and red, so this week’s challenge was perfect for her.
I know another reason why paper distressing is called distressing. Because when you take a beautiful piece of paper and wad it up in a ball and then smooth it back out to use, that can be quite distressing. LOL.
I’ve cut the mat for the image with my Nestibilies. Most of my paper is by DCWV. The roses are by Recollections and I’m not sure about the rest of the items. I used Stickles on the roses and Glossy Accents on the water. The flourish and the inside papers were cut with my Cricut. The inside is cut using “Elegant Edges”.
