Its Cloudy Now

Yes, I know. I'm posting the second time today! I thought I would blog about this card tomorrow, but here I am!
Ok, so this card is for CASology 90, and the cue word is : WET. India is the land of the monsoon, so of course, I had to think about rain...

In the movies, whenever the lead pair have a quarrel and leave each other, they are seen sitting alone by the window all sadly, watching the rain.(I am thinking Friends Season 2, The One Where Ross and Rachel Take a Break). I think this card is inspired from those pictures in my head.
But on a personal level, I am not pining away for anyone. This card has a literal significance for me. I miss rain. I really do. The weather in Kolkata is extremely hot and humid(as is to be expected in April). All of us are salivating for a bit of rain. So you see, this card is my personal entreaty to the rain god.
Now for the process. Really simple. Drew the clouds on blue paper, shaded them a bit with watercolour pencils, stuck them on white CS, cut them out, popped them up, drew the rain, wrote the sentiment and added faux stitches.
Bye for the second time, and happy crafting!

P.S Has anyone heard the song mentioned in the post title? If you have please mention it in your comment :)
