Hello and good afternoon everyone! Sorry everyone that I has been so quiet here lately. I really lost all energy the other week and just thought about my granny that passed away a few weeks ago. It totally drained me, and even the weather worked with me on this. All rain, just poured down and didn't want to stop, which is really suitable for this challenge from the Crafty Card Makers team. The theme for the coming two weeks are "April Showers gives May flowers". So a rainy image together with at least two flowers and you'll be fine for our challenge this time.
My card this time is done with quite a lot of Magnolia products. I really was in the mood to colour with my distress inks and images that is the most fun to colour with these are the Magnolia stamps for some reason. Besides, I have an huge box filled with Magnolias that I have never use so I better get started. This is one of all my Tildas with rubber boots. I love the images with that, I actually have a whole collection with them. LoL
Tilda is paired up with an old Kaiser Kraft pad called The Daisy pad. Flowers are from Magnolia, The ribbon girls and Wild Orchid Craft. Butterflies made with a MS punch, the fabric ones comes from my stash. All edges are covered with some heavy gesso, and I followed the sketch from CLP challenges. Glossy accent and Crackle paint is also used on the image. Some text stamps is also used and they are from Magnolia too.
And this is what our challenge post says more or less this time. Be sure to pop by our challenge blog for all details and see what my teamies has been up too. Some fabby inspiration to be found there.
"Tracey said 'Hello friends. When I think of April, I am always reminded of the saying "April showers bring May flowers".

Your image could be a child splashing in puddles, a person walking in the rain, ducks waddling through puddles, an umbrella, etc.'
Please ensure your creation has both something rain related, and a minimum of two flowers to qualify for a winner or Top 5 slot.
