House Mouse Challenge #213 Rain or Shine (rain)

This House Mouse challenge has a nice theme: Rain or Shine. It brings up happy memories about my favourite music festival Wacken Open Air (W:O:A metal festival in Germany), their motto is 'Rain or Shine' and you can take that literally. Last year there was so much rain and mud that they made a special T-shirt for it, we got stuck in the mud on every inch of the festival. People abandoned their shoes and almost every rainboot was sold out, shoe graveyards everywhere! Luckily there are also years when there is more sun and less rain (hope for more sun this year fingers crossed). Most people refer to this festival as the best metal festival with the worst weather.
Now back to the card. When the challenge came online I knew I had to use my Stampin'Up! paper with raindrops. I recently bought a House Mouse stamp with a cute paper umbrella. I wanted to make another 'behind the window' card, I started by making the view through the window directly on the card. Stamped the image a few times and masked them with liquid masking film. When it dried I taped the edges of the card before colouring the background with ink. Made some grey rain clouds and threw on some raindrops with a brush. I made a window frame by using my square dies and behind the frame I put a piece of plastic to make it look more like a real window. Another mouse is looking at the stormy sky in front of the window, this mouse is a part of another stamp. To finish it off I used some real paper umbrella's to match it with the stamp.
