Sunshine or Rain - Artful Times

So this weeks theme over at Artful Times is 'sunshine or rain'.  I decided to make a rainbow background with the distress stains and blended them in with distress inks.  I threw some water over the tag to create some water marks. I put white fresco paint through a stencil along the top half.  I lightly stamped the bottom half in black stazon with a Traci Bautisa stamp. I painted umbrella man with black eco friendly paint and hi-lighted the embossed script with pewter treasure gold.

Hi I'm Sam, 45, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 25 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 9 years and 0 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
