Stamp Something ,,,,,April Showers

Hi all :-) I am back with my 2nd card of the day, this one is my DT card for the Stamp Something Challenge. The theme for this week is

APRIL SHOWERS , you can use rain/cloud images or papers or use watercolours for your image :-)

We are sponsored by Whiff Of Joy so a fabulous stamp on offer for one lucky entrant.

For my card I followed the fab sketch on the Stamp With Fun Challenge . I used this Wee with Broken Leg image ( he’s under the weather !! ) Now ,, please don’t look TOO closely because I had a go at colouring with Distress Inks and I definitely NEED more practise :-) I am hoping that once Amy’s exams are over she will give me some water colouring lessons :-) I also inked around the edges with Stormy Sky distress ink. The papers are Sparkling Spring from Crafty Emma Store. I used a few Basic Grey buttons and a ribbon from my stash. I also added a Prima rose and some American Tag Hemp Twine to finish :-)

Thanks for looking , the DT have made some fabulous cards for your inspiration Smile

For my card I just HAD to use my new Penny Black stamp set , J’aime Paris. I stamped the figures, then masked them to stamp the Tour Eiffel behind them I then coloured the image with Copics and decoupaged the bouquet. I also used my new Unity Postcard stamp. Both of these were inked around the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink . I have had these papers FOREVER and can’t remember the brand ?? the flowers are Prima and I added a hear charm and a few Kaiser Crafts pearls to finish
