Showers of Love


Hi, everyone! Happy Friday!

I have had this card in my head since I got this set, Rain or Shine, from My Favorite Things. I finally had some time to make it happen today, plus I got to use my new Copics! :) I used this week's Sketch Challenge on the MFT forum at Splitcoaststampers (I turned the sketch on its side). The sentiment is computer generated, and the heart is from Love Ya Much by C.C. Designs. I colored the image with my Copics and added some Stickles to the boots and puddle. I sponged around the white circle and the image panel with Regal Rose ink. To make the umbrella, I first inked it with Basic Gray, then colored over it with my gray Copic and colored in the polka dots with pink. I cut it out, covered it in Crystal Effects, then popped it up on dimensionals. The gorgeous two-tone ribbon is from May Arts. I love the way it shimmers!

I'm so happy with this card -- it's just the way I envisioned it! That doesn't happen very often! lol. I'm so glad you stopped by today -- have a great weekend!! :)
