April showers....bring on the flowers!

Hello, my lovely friends, and welcome!

April showers indeed........it's been throwing down here, and windy with it!

I absolutely love using digi stamps, and can't believe how many I've collected....you name...I've got it, lol!

This little beauty was from the very talented Paulette, over at TLC (link in the sidebar), and it is soooo cute, and was begging to be coloured up...heehee....and will do as one of my "just-in-case" cards............I've  had the image for yonks, and was browsing through my digis and came across her......

Here she is........

The papers are from an old K&Co. kit, except for the pearlised pink, which was from my scrap box.......


I actually toyed with the idea of using watercolour pencils, but finally opted for my ol' Promarkers (quicker, lol)........I used a Sakura white glaze pen to make the dots on the l'il raincoat (I'm sure I had one like that when I was a tiny girlie), and I cut out the image with my Deckled-Edge Nestie, and inked around the edge, which I also did with all the layered papers........

The pretty flowers, and buttons, are from Papermania's Capsule collection........did a bit of paper-prickin' around the pink pearly papers......


........and coloured-up this cute ticket........
and there she is!

Sorry to be in a bit of a rush with this one, but please do ya stuff, and let me know whatcha think.......

Anything goes
