I have been playing with Brushos water color crystals and embossing to make some fun backgrounds.  I love how this one came out:

For my base, I took a mat and sprinkled on three colors of Brushos.  I then sprayed them with water and smashed my paper into the crystals.  I then let it dry and embossed the Raindrop Background with white embossing powder and Versamark. For the top panel, I used the same color mixture, but I smashed my paper into the mixture several times until it all blended and covered the paper.  I embossed the Dancing in the Rain greeting and the Umbrella images on the same panel.  Next I fussy cut the umbrella, added Stickles to make it look like it was shimmering in the rain, and then I popped it up on the corner. 

A fun card to make!
