If you close your eyes the rain sounds like applause.

I stenciled and stamped the background with acrylic paint. Using my Stampendous stamps and the included templates. Added a translucent yellow acrylic paint over it and then stenciled and stamped some more on top. The quote is written with a bamboo sketch pen and acrylic ink.

Here is a list of supplies :)

And remember – close your eyes when it rains…it might just sound like applause ;)
