Come rain or shine...

 Good morning and Happy Easter, I hope you're having the 'shine and not the rain! Our optional theme at Crafty Catz this week is 'April Showers' picked by our lovely Sue (Olliesmam), we're sponsored by 

Jan’s Digital Stamps

Prize $6 gift certificate

The team were given some fabulous images to play with from the April Showers set,  I used the cloud,the friends with umbrellas and the sentiment, merging them together, coloured with Copic markers and a white gel pen. Glossy accents added to the tiny raindrops and splashes in the puddle. I added a die cut sun and raindrops- then there had to be a rainbow, I don't have a rainbow die so I drew one, cut it out and inserted it behind the cloud.
As always, our theme is optional, anything goes if you want to play along.
Have a wonderful Easter Weekend

Hi Chris, this is stunning! I love the rainbow and the umbrellas are fab! Had a little look back at your past few posts as well - life got in the way of craft and I've not been in blogland much recently - as always your cards are wonderful, love the purple dragon image!

I've got more time again, so you should see me more often - no idea though if that is a promise or a threat!! :-)
