Guest DT Sunday with Tessa Wise

I'm so happy to be guest designing for Butterfly Reflections Ink! I've been a customer since my local store closed in the spring and just love it! I'm a busy wife and mom from Northern Virginia. I've been crafty since childhood but currently, cards are my favorite thing to make. I love trying out new techniques and design styles. I also enjoys teaching others about cardmaking. Currently, I design for Teresa Collins Designs, SRM Stickers, Newton's Nook Designs, and the Waffle Flower Stamps Challenge. You can find my work on my personal blog:
The Over the Rainbow set caught my eye as soon as I saw a sneak peek on Instagram! For this card, I was inspired by the fun 'dance in the rain' sentiment. It makes me feel so carefree! I decided to make a simple one-layer card with dancing umbrellas. I started with a white card base and stamped the umbrella image along the bottom using navy, butter yellow, slate gray, and light pink ink. I stamped the sentiment on the left hand side using navy ink. I splattered the card with gray mist and let it dry. To finish it off, I embellished with a few sequins from the Studio Calico Atlantic collection.
