April showers…

 …bring forth May flowers.

As it’s the first Monday of the month we have our usual Anything Goes challenge at Craft Your Passion.We also have 4 fabulous sponsors Mami Doodles,Digital Delights by Louby Lou,The Charm Barn and Crafter’s Companion.So to be in for the chance to win play along.Full details on the challenge site.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT and GDT’s beautiful work while you’re there.

I was lucky enough to get to work with Rainy Day.Isn’t she a real cutie?She’s been coloured with Polychromos that have  blended out with low odour oil thinners using a paper stump.It may be difficult to pick up but I gave the raindrops and puddles a coating of Glossy Accents for a watery effect.I had planned on applying some Sakura Clear Glaze Pen on her wellies and mac as it’s flatter than GA but no matter how hard I tried I couldn’t get the ink to flow.That’s what you get for not using stuff often enough I suppose 😦 I chose these cheerful papers with the saying in mind and given the nature of the card I was creating.The sentiment was computer generated by me and I used thread for a change to ribbon to suspend it.I punched some daisies in some of the pink paper and added some clear acrylic dew drops.These ones aren’t the expensive cardmaking ones.I bought these Wedding table decoration ones from eBay in a larger quantity and for a lot less.They’ve been adhered with GA as not only does it dry crystal clear but it ensures they remain firmly on your card!
