Monochrome Raindrop Card

I saw on Papertrey Ink the Make it Monday Challenge #251 Gradient Watercolor die cuts and was inspired to try a card using my Zig Real Color pens.

I have the Papertrey Ink Rainy Day cover up die and was thinking wonderful blue raindrops would look great.   Also the Simon Says Monday challenge was to make a Monochrome project.  This card fits the bill for both.


Raindrops on head


Although  this was very simple to make using water color paper and Zig Real Clean Color markers, it was harder to keep the raindrops in the card so I can line them up on the card.  I finally had to use the negative space card to use as a template and glue each of the drops in place.   I then used some of my favorite raindrop gems on the card to give the additional feel of rain.   Finally just a simple sentiment from the rainy day sentiments stamp set which was embossed in white.


Here is a close up of the card where you can see the gradient of color better on the drops.   I really like the gemstones, I think it adds just the right about of bling to the card.
