April Showers.

Hello all!
      it seems a very appropriate title for this post as it is a very drizzly day today and still abnormally cold here in the UK!!  The 'April showers' refers to the latest challenge over at The Outlawz, (alcohol markers group) and you can interpret this however you wish as long as you use alcohol markers on your creation!  That is the whole point of our challenge after all :)

           For my card I used a digi I drew myself which should be available from LilyPink Designs @ CYDI   next week.  The background was also done using Copics by dripping a mixture of colourless blender and some Copic ink refills onto some cardstock and letting them all swirl together - once dry, I stamped a large flower stamp randomly over the colours.



                    I think gardeners are among the few people that actually appreciate the rain  - not in too great a quantity though!
     I would like to put this in for the challenges at - Sassy Studios , Addicted to Stamps , Crafting for all seasons , Crafts and me,  Fab N Funky , Can You Digi It? and Digistamps 4 joy .

 
Thanks for stopping by :)
