Rainy Day Mini Canvas with Want2Scrap

We have certainly been experiencing our share of rainy spring days in my neck of the woods and I was inspired to create a mini canvas featuring a cute charm from Want2Scrap!  Lately I have been indulging my interest in mixed media and I love the way this simple project came together.

The Design Team was really lucky to receive some products from Sparkle N Sprinkle, one of our Cross Promotional Partners.  They have a huge range of glitters, embossing powders, adhesives and stamps - among other things!  I used the Puddles Stamp Set for this canvas.  I stamped and embossed one of the sentiments from the set using Black Opaque Embossing Powder.  I initially stamped the figure with the umbrella using Platinum Embossing Powder.
I quickly decided I wanted a more traditional silhouette, so I re-inked the stamp and stamped on top of the first image.  My stamp block is transparent so it was really easy to line it up. This time I applied the Black Opaque Embossing Powder and used my heat gun.  Perfect!

I painted a puddle across the bottom right corner of the canvas with Ken Oliver's Ultramarine Blue Color Burst water colors, then splattered "raindrops" all over.  To attach the charm, I used a few pieces of  1/8" Tear-ific Double Sided Tape.

The final detail is a 3mm Turquoise Rhinestone which covers the hole in the charm perfectly!

Did you know that Want2Scrap has almost 100 different charms to choose from in a wide variety of themes?  Check them out and I am sure you will find the perfect one to embellish your project!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today!  Susie
