Changito Rain

Good morning!  I was going through the list of challenges and picked a few to combine with this card.  As I was looking for an "uninked" stamp, I came across this cute Changito image.  I've had him for quite some time...can't believe he sat there unused!  Then I remembered this paper that I bought for a swap; I thought the stripes and raindrops would be perfect....  I added a few brads for "metal" and was on my way....

Changito is colored with pencils and accented with a black gel pen and a touch of glitter.  I used my corner rounder to add a bit of interest to the panels...I really need to remember to do this more often.  I finished the card with some white brads.  Only after I'd finished did I realize that I put the rain drop panel on upside down!  Ack!  A little "card surgery" and all is well!  LOL

Stamp: Stampendous
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Sakura Black Gel Pen
Paper: Gina K. Pure Luxury CS, SU! Crushed Curry, Piggy Tales DP
