Our challenge at Crafty Cardmakers this fortnight is hosted by Tracey who chose the team April Showers Bring May Flowers. Tracey wants us to use a rain related image, so ducks in a puddle or children splashing in a puddle, people sheltering under an umbrella etc, and at least two flowers. I bet when she came up with the idea she had no idea that the April Showers in question would be snow showers!
I saw the embossing folder used in the background here, from Crafters Companion and thought how it would make a fabulous flowery background. So first I cut out a frame using my Go Kreate dies, and then put the whole thing back together and ran it through my machine with that folder. You can see where the missing frame went in the next pic.
Using Squeezed Lemonade and Peacock Feathers DIs I inked over the raised flowers in random patterns.
My image is from Sassy Cheryl and I colured her with copics and promarkers.
Hopefully you can see on the above pic that I used Glossy Accents to highlight the puddle, the umbrella, her goggles and the rain drops. I edged around the card with Peacock Feathers and matted it onto plain white card.
The flowers were all in my stash luckily in the right shades, but the pearls I coloured with some of the shades of copic I had used in the image.
