The lovely Gez is hosting this weeks challenge over at Stampotique Designers and the challenge is to design a one layer card. This is mine using a stencil to represent rain. The stencil is a Julie Fei-Fan Balzer design for Crafters Workshop. I applied the colour using cut and dry foam and a Jennie Bowlin ink pad Soap Powder. I stamped the Stampotique tree and put Grumpy the dog underneath supposedly sheltering from the rain, because there are no leaves on the tree so he gets wet he grumpily says "Whatever" Bla, bla,bla. The border is also a Stampotique designed by Jo Capper-Sandon I think and can't remember the name of it. I coloured the tree and Grumpy the dog with Rusty Hinge Distress marker.

Hi everyone especially those who take part in Kate's 365 calendar challenge. Here's my July page all filled in and my August page ready to go. I am afraid my calendar is very regimented, boring and no little drawings that I keep thinking about doing but only think about it, so all you get is written journal squares.
