Happy Wednesday, blog friends!!  

It's time for another What If? Wednesday challenge at The House That Stamps Built and this week it's an inspiration challenge.  I love playing with inspiration challenges (I know that's weird....most people don't like them) and have lots of fun seeing what I can create using them.  

Here's the inspiration we're challenged with this week...

Are your creative wheels spinning?  This is such a great inspiration piece and I hope you'll give it a try and play along.  If you do, you'll be in the running for some great RI stamps.  You ecan see the details at The House.

Here is a card I made using this inspiration

I was drawn to the "swirls" and "streaks" of rain as much as the colors.  I chose to use RI Stamp #6909-M "Pinwheel Positive" and used heat embossing with white ep to create the "swirls".  I then used watercolor paints to add the background color and once dry, I added stickles in streaks to create the pouring rain.  My sentiment die is from My Favorite Things and was a freebie.  I cut the sentiment 3 times with different cs colors and off set them in order to get the "shadow" look.  The stitched rectangle frame die is also from MFT.    

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll join the challenge at The House.  If you'd like to see more inspiration, check out the other Rock'll see some fabulous cards.
