Summer rainstorm- mixability card.

This week's mixability challenge on is to make a summer or graduation card with sparkle and use at least 2 mediums. You might look at my card and wonder where my summer is. Well.... I started by thinking summer... hot... sun... sun shining through clouds... plus I grew up in Arizona where the summer thunderstorms were a special treat. A break in the heat. Especially since we didn't have any air conditioning. I ink(markers) spray smashed the background. I stamped the clouds and painted them with white acrylic paint. I used a black ink pen to outline the clouds after I painted them I added pencil and acrylic paint to the raindrops. on the little highlights of the raindrops I added a drop of glue and glitter. I also sprayed the cloud panel with silver shimmer spray.  

I have been wanting to put more of a personal touch with my mixed media projects by handwriting my quotes. I hand wrote the quote on the bottom of the easel for this card. It says. "Your kindness is like the sun shining through the clouds on even the darkest day."

It was hard to photograph the sparkle so I made a quick video. I hope you can see the sparkle and see what I was going for with this project.
