Some Rain Must Fall

I have no idea how to doodle now that I am... old'er.' When I was in junior and high school, I think I must have been near professional level doodler depending on how boring the teacher lectured. There were notebooks filled with doodling, zentangles (before they were called zentangles) and penmanship styles. Now you can purchase how-to books showing how to doodle (seriously) as well as how to create zentangles. 

The card below is for a friend - doesn't it seem like when it rains it pours? She feels like that right now but this is to help her realize it rains on everyone, and it's temporary (unless you live on Kauai or in Ketchikan, Alaska).

The image and sentiment are heat embossed with black embossing powder. I doodled the palm trees waaaay back in the bay behind the hula dancer. I doodled the ocean waves lapping at her feet, the rain falling from the cloud, and all the little dots are flowers on the hillside.

The cloud on the left is popped up on adhesive foam dots. I swiped some Wink of Stella glitter across the ocean, the clouds, and the rain. The ocean foam is a product called Snow Tex - it's like foamy white soft toothpaste with fine glitter and dries quickly. Then I added some Stickles Diamonds in the rain and waves.
