DCM- Pockets of fun


OK so here's this weeks DCM dare........
It's my turn - (Lynne) - to set the dare this week.OoooOOoooOOooooOOOoo!!!!!!!!My first Dare. I’m so nervous, I can’t believe that it’s my turn already.I’ve gone for something nice and easy - had to break myself in gently.POCKETS I’d like to see lots and lots of pockets. Pockets full of posies, Brass in Pocket (love the Pretenders).Pockets on clothes, Pockets from clothes, Library Pocket, Pockets of this and Pockets of that. Get the idea? Pockets and Pockets of Pockets.
Well we've had so much rain and flooding here in Hull we're all a little fed up so I thought i'd make a little 'cheer up' card fitting the rain theme, now I just need to decide who to give it to.
The umbrella is the pocket, holding a secret umbrella tag inside. I triple embossed the umbrella, finishing it off with some clear embossing powder to give it a wet look. It's my first attempt at doodling on a card but I really enjoyed it.

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving your comments. I used an old sponge with gesso and dabbed it on a piece of card. With a baby wipe, I wiped rangers distress inks over this, the gesso acts as a resist. You could also swipe the gesso with an old credit card to give a different dragging effect. Have fun =0)
