Singing in the rain.

Indiana has had too many April showers and it is only the first part of April.  Most of the state is under a flood warning at this time.  I decided to make a card that shows a  happier side of April showers.  The silhouette of a little girl with an umbrella about to step in a puddle.  I am sure that she is singing as she skips along.  Mama Duck is right behind her quacking "look at my 3 adorable babies."

The silhouette is made in slate grey paper with a black patterned paper on the umbrella with the Cricut cartridge A Child's Year.  The ducks are made with white paper for mama and yellow paper for goslings from the Cricut cartridge Animal Kingdom.   CTMH colored pencils were used to color the feet and beaks.  The puddle and raindrops were made by blending CTMH Lagoon and Sky Markers, then the drops were dotted with CTMH liquid glass and the puddle covered the liquid glass and lightly sprinkled with glitter.  I feel that I may have overdone the raindrops, but as I made the card it was raining so hard that I couldn't see across the street!  The letters are from  two old sets of CTMH  stamps using the Lagoon ink pad.  This card is being entered in the BBTB2 Challenge.

  5. What a cute card! I love your girl with her umbrella and the ducks, too cute. I love that you added the puddle and the rain drops, really adds to the scene. I am with you on the rain, if it isn't snow it is rain and we both have had enough of each in our states. I'm just ready for sunny, warm lazy summer days. It would be nice if summer would hang around longer than winter. lol Thanks for joining us at BBTB2 ;-)
