April showers

   Our challenge theme this week at Eureka Stamps is 'think Spring'. I immediately thought of April showers so chose this Eureka Stamp digi, number 36303. It is one of a set of four and I printed it in blue rather than the normal black and then coloured it using Spectrum Noir pens. The clouds were coloured using distress inks and a masking technique. It was then matted onto white card.
   I then used a Sakura glaze pen on all the raindrops to give them a bit of a sheen. The sentiment is another Eureka Stamp digi (number 11904) and I matted it onto blue core'dinations cardstock before atteaching to the card using foam pads.
   The parasol was cut using a Tattered Lace die and coloured using pens. I then backed it onto white card, shaped it slightly and attached it to the card using glue gel.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
