April Showers


Hello!  We are expecting April Showers later today so I decided to make a card using Wags 'n Whiskers Love You Sis stamp with a rain theme.   I only used the upper portion of the stamp featuring the umbrella.  After stamping in Memento Tuxedo Black I colored the image with Copics  and added some Glossy Accents to the umbrella.  I pulled my colors  and layout from the Fusion challenge shown below. My clouds were cut on the Cameo with a Silhouette file and I used a Spellbinders Circle die for the image.  I used a "cloudy" blue CS for the background and white CS for the base.  The Raindrops are Cloud9 Design Rain Dots.

Challenges:
Fusion Card Challenge: April Showers. I used both the photo and sketch.
Addicted to CAS: Challenge #86 Code word is Rain
Retro Rubber Challenge: #36 April Showers. I know this stamp goes back to about 2010.
Double D Challenge: April Showers Bring May Flowers
Mod Squad Challenge: Water, water everywhere!  I have raindrops on my card.
