April showers

Hello fellow Crafters,

and happy Wednesday to you...

Today Carol is our hostess over at Stampotique, and she want us to make something around the theme "April Showers". This is what she said:

' I love the early months of the year and to me I only have to hear the month April and 

instantly in my head the song from Bambie is playing, and I am now humming, bom, bom 

little April showers, so use water, rain and April showers as your inspiration this week xx'

Here is mine :

This is a page in my Moleskine journal. I painted the page with Paper Artsy Fresco Paints in yellow and two shades of orange. I kept it very subtle. I stamped 'Folded Tags' on the page with orange ink and clear embossed it. It is almost invisible. I then used 'Fax to Wolfgang' to stamp some random text. I used a top of a spray bottle and some black ink to make the rings. I used the 'Stack of birds' stamp for my main image but decided to cut them apart. I coloured and clear embossed them and cut them out. And because it was raining I gave them an umbrella made out of France's 'Carrousel' stamp. I drew the handle and coloured and embossed it. The drops were all hand drawn, coloured and cut out by me !!! I glued them on the page in a random pattern. When everything was adhered to the page I used a Copic Marker and coloured under the birds to ground them.

Thanks for stopping by ! 

Hope you like it.....

  4. I really admire how you can look at one of the Stampotique stamps and see the possibilities of using just pieces'n'parts of them, as you have done here! Such a clever umbrella to shelter your family of birds! Strong colors, too, which I love!
