She set the theme of "April Showers" - which could mean pertaining to the weather, baby, or wedding ....
I initially didn't think I could come up with anything for the April showers theme to do with the weather, but on looking through my stash of freebie magazine papers and having a sort out, I came across a perfect quote by Dolly Parton.
Craftwork Cards Back 2 Basics- Elegant Edge
WRMemoryKeepers patterned paper
Green Bazzill cardstock (for Grass)
Dolly Parton quote - The Papertrail Company in the Scrapbook Magazine
MAMBI cloud stamp
Rubber Stampede stamp "Splashing Witzy"
Used Craftwork Cards - Elegant Edge base card.
Cut the grass with the Sizzix Extended Cuts die.
Used my Oval Framelits to die-cut a rainbow using the whole series of oval dies.
Stamp some clouds onto white cardstock.
Stamp the duck using Memento ink and colouring in the background and detail with Promarkers.
I am not normally one for making cute cards, but when I saw that someone had this stamp for sale on the Marketplace on UK Scrappers, I decided to buy it, as I thought it would be useful someday for layouts of the boys in the bath! I struggled with this card, but when rifling through my stamp drawers and coming across this happy ducky stamp, it was perfect for pulling all the other elements together in a positive and upbeat way. I coloured in the background of the stamped duck with the colour that exactly matched the WRMK paper, so the duck just appears to be splashing in a puddle amongst the grass, without the normal "halo" effect that you would get when leaving a white border uncoloured around your image.
What things can you come up with from your stash that makes a card to fit this challenge? The ingredients of your drawers and cupboards may surprise you ...
