April Showers

Hello all, I'm back from my trip to Kent last week and had a great time with lovely sunny weather. I also managed to acquire some vintage cabinet cards in Broadstairs and a lovely songbird illustration book in a charity shop in Margate, very happy additions to my vintage crafty stash too.
There will be some photos to share as well when I've had a chance to go through what I took and hopefully find some good ones!
We have a new challenge for you today over at Make My Monday and the theme this week chosen by Marina is April Showers - not something I really want at the moment!

I've chosen to ink up one of my favourite Viva Las Vegastamps for my card as she's such a cute and quirky image. I stamped her on smooth white stamping card and added the sentiment to the side of her. I coloured her with pencils and hand drew a puddle under her feet with a fine black pen, adding a little pencil colour.
I then stencilled the edges of a white square card blank with a Crafters Workshop mini tiny dot stencil using Worn Lipstick and Stormy Sky Distress inks. The ones going down the card remind me of rain drops which I think fit quite well with the image.
I added the main panel to pink and blue mats before adding to the tent fold card to finish.

Have a great day and a good week.

  5. I love that cute and quirky image - great use of space and I love your hand drawn puddle.

  6. Such a cool stamp - and I would never have known the puddle wasn't part of it. Let's hope the showers stay confined to the challenge - it's certainly going to be warm and sunny today.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. Your thoughts mean a great deal to me.
