Smudgy Antics Challenge - Rain Down on Me

I really have a thing for boxes. Years ago, I had a "money spell" box, but I have no clue where it disappeared to. Anyway, I made a new one and this is will be on the lid of it:

I used a piece of DCWV's Street Lace for the base. The background of white & blue was done using Distress Stains in Picket Fence and Denim, spritzed with water & dried. It kind of looked like clouds and rain. The stamped image is from Smeared Ink, a digi called "Fortune Teller", colored with colored pencils in shades of mostly green (for money, what else?). I added some gems falling from the sky, a sentiment handwritten, some mint green ribbon, a strip of printed gaffer tape from 7 Gypsies.
Thanks for looking.


  1. Love the effect created with the stains with the added rain drops. The colouring of your image is fab as well :). Thank you for sharing at Smudgy Antics this week and look forward to seeing more of your artwork

  2. Dianne it is a wonderful pleasure to see you creating again.
    The distress stain background is perfect.... and the gem rain drops... totally gorgeous work my friend...thanks for joining us at Smudgy antics this week.

  3. Dianne, you did a great job on the marbled stains technique for the Compendium of Curiosities 2 Challenge, and created such a wonderful and fun piece! The rain drops are brilliant.

    Thanks so much for being part of the challenge at Studio L3!
