Here is my today’s card.



  • Create a background using a blending technique with the oxide ink ‘broken china’ on the A2 sized white cardstck.
  • Add water splashes to the blended panel for creating a fun texture
  • Stamp girl/boy wearing raincoat images from Mama Elephant CHANCE OF RAIN stamp set in black ink on the panel.
  • Stamp a cat image from Studio Calico “House Guests”(discontinued) on the panel.
  • Colour the images using Shinhan touch markers.
