2 in 1 - Rain, Rain Go Away

Hi everybody

I thought this was quite appropriate as I was making this - it was bucketing down with rain outside. What happened to summer?
This is being entered for two challenges

- the Whiff of Joy Monday Challenge, where I am following the sketch by the very talented Bev Rochester, whose work I absolutely love and find inspirational, and if any of you get the opportunity to one of Bev's workshops, then do so, they are great fun and you will learn a lot.

- Crafty Cardmarkers, the challenge being to use Complementary colours, based on the colour wheel; my complementary colours (based on my Bazzill Wheel) are Dark Orange and Dark Blue.

I have used a Whiff of Joy stamp, Willow in the Rain, coloured with Prisma pencils. The base card is different friom my usual, and I am not sure I like the way the pencils work with this card. Background papers are Bazzill orange and Basic Grey Marradesh (the first ones I have used from the pack - I bought these for stroking!! - the colours are so me). The greeting is Stampin' Up, and all the embellishments are from The Hobby House.

Thanks for stopping by.
