April Showers

Hello Everyone ~ I sure how we get some April Showers as we need the rain!

Well I did not get to work on my taxes yesterday so I will be working on them today.  I also need to make a card for later this week.  It should be a low key day as the taxes are just a matter of entering the numbers.  I am hoping to get it finished today so I can set up an appointment to get them done.

Today at Make My Monday challenge blog  our challenge is

April Showers

 create a project with items associated with
  rain – color, umbrella, raindrops, etc.


I thought it would be fun to create some rain clouds along with some rain boots.  I used the Sprinkles of Life.  I stamped the clouds onto Smoky Slate using the same color ink.  T he matching punch was used to punch them out.  The little rain drops are from the same punch and I used Silver Glimmer paper.  A piece of Soft Sky dsp was mounted onto a piece of Island Indigo card stock.  Then the clouds were added to this layer using dimensionals.  I added the raindrops with glue dots.  A ruler was used along with a glitter pen to add lines from the clouds to the raindrops.  The rain boots were stamped and colored with an Island Indigo and Soft Sky markers.  I then cut them out and added them to the panel with dimensionals.  Using a Whisper White card base and the retired clouds embossing folder I embossed the card base front.  The image panel was also added with dimensionals.  Here is my completed creation.
