OK, so we had 70 degrees at the weekend and then snow yesterday, three days later! Really? The poor daffodils have been whipped by the wind, and are looking a little droopy as a result, but hopefully they'll perk back up, as our temperatures are supposed to gently increase over the next week.
Last week I left you with a sneak peak of another card that used the April Shower's Set from Sparkle N Sprinkle:
I used Dimensional Glue to get the "wet look" for my orange brolly and wellies and added some Waterscape and Cloud Nine Glitter with the Sakura Glue pen for the sparkle on the yellow umbrella and the puddle.
I had made a flocked background using the Darice Heart Embossing Folder with Sun Dazzle Sparkle N Soft and Lady Bug Memento ink. If you missed the tutorial on the flocked backgrounds - it can be found here.
Doesn't the top photo look as though the heart center is raised? Funny how the camera can play tricks! Here is what it really looks like:
The Spellbinder's Scalloped heart was cut from the center of the flocked background and then I put the smaller red heart behind it. The image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics. The sky and puddle were sponged with Memento inks.
The image was attached to a yellow card base and then the flocked piece was layered over the top with dimensionals. Sentiment was stamped on yellow card stock in Versamark and heat embossed with Detail Black. I cut out the saying using the same scalloped heart die and then cut along the top and bottom of the sentiment and edged it with the Lady Bug ink.
I love this little SNS set - so appropriate for this time of year. Just think of all the May flowers these April showers will bring! Full directions for the card, if needed, can be found in the Sparkle N Sprinkle Gallery.
I think I may have found the perfect challenge for this little card - it's with Stampotique Designers Challenge, April Showers!
Hope you have a great week and that if you do get caught in an April shower that you've got an umbrella handy!
