'R' is for Rain

The seventh letter in the The Craft Barn alpha challenge is 'R' and I have chosen the word Rain.

I started with a piece of 6x7 inch white card stock and punched the 2 holes on the correct side to make my book page.  I glued the dictionary page to the base and then coloured with Tim Holtz faded jeans distress ink before spritzing with 3 blue Dylusions ink sprays and spritzing with water (unfortunately I made an error by forgetting to cover my word and definition before adding the colour).  Next I stamped the umbrella man by Tim Holtz and the water droplets from Designs by Ryn in black ink and then added a white dot to each drop.  I also added black and white pen lines around the edge of the page and doodled around the word and definition then highlighted the man and covered the word with Tim Holtz rock candy crackle paint.  Finally I added the appropriate Tim Holtz alphabet letter and stamped my chosen word onto black card stock.
Thanks for looking!
