April Showers

Well it seems to me that it's more like April downpours rather than showers at the moment. Unbelievably I was soaked by a downpour and hailstorm at the same time this that's just not right for the end of April is it?

But the subject of April showers certainly gets me digging around amongst my stamps and digi's as I have a bit of a thing for characters holding umbrellas...don't ask me why!

Look what I came up with...this little beauty from Prairie Fairy which I bought for Easter 2012 I think!
As you can see, I thought this lovely image was worth spending a bit of time on, so I printed her out 3 times and coloured and decoupaged her for that 3d effect.

I also tried a new technique for me...adding clouds to the background and I was really please with the result....much better than loads of plain white everywhere.

Finally, in honour of the showery season, out came the diamond glaze to make the raindrops and of course those fabulous glasses...job done I think!

So there are a few challenges which I would like to enter with this one and here they are:

Papertake - Weather with you
