Here Comes The Rain theme fortnight challenge reveal at MTTC blog

Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! Oh, I'm excited about revealing this darling card due to being creative and truly getting some mixed media mojo going! Base flat card is a teal green and the background is a charcoal slate gray. Onto the background I dabbed a mid-teal blue and purple using a makeup sponge. Then I came back over with a darker blue but cut a divot out of the sponge to alter the shape of how pressing with my fingertip transfers the ink. Then using that same divot area, I applied silver glitter paint pen over and over again as I made little accents around the card. Some scattered navy blue pearl gems to look like bigger raindrops were final embellishments.

Just because it's a rainy day card for MTTC blog=
