APRIL SHOWERS...DT

 Hello everyone,

Time for a new challenge over at 613 Avenue Create and we have our sponsor with us this month..

Mirtillamente Craft Shop  and the design team members had images to play with and I chose this fun lass...Grace Umbrella  and our theme is " APRIL SHOWERS" optional of course..



When I colour skin I'm not comfy at all using markers for skin, so out came my pencils..
The little bottle with the paper stub for blending is Archival blending solution...



Some of my pencils are getting a bit stubby!!..



I went with markers for her hair and all her clothes etc..


Oop's lost it..


Added darker shade...better.




I'm pretty happy about this stage..by then saying to myself, leave her alone..


Then I did the background, I know, risky, but it was okay, and added my glossy accents
rain drops, squirt and flick..easy.


Gave her some clouds to stand under...


Some glossy rain underfoot and lots of MB die cut brolly's...


Lastly a gold embossed sentiment and she was all done..


So come on over and join us on the porch HERE

Thank you so much for stopping by and I'll see you tomorrow..

Luv CHRISSYxx

I am so surprised that you use pencils for the skin Chrissy, I would never get it right with pencils, I use copics for skin and the rest is promarkers, the odd pencil and sometimes chalks, just shows really. ANYWAYS after that blatther...haha...I think she is coloured beautifully and I love the background and all those brollys are perfect, very cute card.xx

Brilliant colouring Chrissy. I must get my pencils out and try it on skin as my markers are nearly empty! Love the finished card!

I never get skin or hair right, like it should be, bu maybe one day I will have seen enough videos and tutorials to get it right:) your sassy lady looks beautiful as a brunette, I liked her blonde version too though. So fun with the raindrops and umbrellas.
