Hope your week is going well so far. I can't believe another weekend is already over, they always go so fast. My kids are on Spring break this week, so we will be busy! Last Friday we posted a new Stamp Something challenge, but I didn't have my card ready. Now I do! So I thought I would share that with you today.
The challenge this week is "April Showers" and you can interpret this in a few ways. One way is to use an image or paper with rain, clouds, umbrellas, etc. Another way is to use water coloring on your creation or create rain or clouds using various techniques. I have chosen to use paper with clouds and then to make my own clouds on the image by coloring them with Copics. I found a fab tutorial on our DT member Annika's blog.
Come Fly with Me" and it's been colored with copics and then used Annika's tutorial for creating the cloudy sky background. The papers are MME and have been stitched on the sewing machine. I've kept the embellishments simple on this card so that I can use it for a masculine birthday card. I've used some vintage seam binding and CE on the balloon to create a glossy effect.
This card fits the challenges at:
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - One for the Boys
Craft Your Passion - You've been spotted (use dots)
Lawnscaping - Critters
Make it Monday - Anything goes
Paper Playtime - Weather
Stamp with Fun - Birthday

Thanks for dropping by today. Hope you have a great week! See you soon, I hope!
