CC2C - Challenge 13

And it's another week's challenge from Linda at Studio L3, using p 42 of Tim's book Compendium of Curiosities vol ii, this week sponsored by Simon Says Stamp.  And once again I've left it until the last day!!
This week it's one of Tim's classic techniques - spritz & flick distress.  I love this technique, it's quick to do & you can get some great results!
In 'honour' of our 'summer' here in the UK (which has been extremely wet!) I thought I'd use the theme of 'rain'!!
I love Tim's quote stamp about '... learning to dance in the rain' (I'm learning!!!).  So on top of the (heavily) Spritz & Flicked Distress background, I used this quote, and the 'umbrella girl' stamp from Art Journey - a great stamp company in the Netherlands.  
I added a few Glossy Accent raindrops and some drops on the distress inked flowers ...
 & also created a Glossy Accents puddle!!

The distress ink colours I used were dusty concord, broken china & shabby shutters for the background, shaded lilac & dusty concord for the flowers, and black soot & aquamarine archival for the stamping.
It's supposed to be getting better and more summery by the weekend, so finger's crossed - I may decide on a 'sunshine' theme next week!!!

Back soon!  Kay
