April Showers

This week's challenge at The Outlawz Coloring Challenges is "April Showers."  My Outlawz Coloring Challenge teammates, Carla, Penny, Laine, and I challenge you to use create a project for this challenge. You can use any color medium you like, just as long as you color! 

Our April sponsor at The Outlawz Coloring Challenges is Sweet Pea Stamps, who is offering our lucky winner four digis of his/her choice from the Sweet Pea Digi Stamp Store.  Play along with us for your chance to win!

Here's my card using Sweet Pea/Lisa Victoria's Rain Dragon. 

Rain Dragon was resized in PhotoElements, printed out onto Neenah cardstock using my laser printer, then colored with Copic markers. When I was done coloring, the image panel took a ride through my Big Kick to be die-cut with one of the dies from the Card Creators A2 die set (Spellbinders). While it was still in the die, I colored the background with a custom-blended less than TO Copic marker. 

The patterned paper is from the seriously old, almost used up My Mind's Eye 6x6 patterned paper pad, Quite Contrary. and were layered according to Sweet Sunday's Sketch #263, which is below so you can see how I did.
All edges were sponged with Antique Linen Distress ink (Ranger). Three yellow rhinestones were added to finish the card.

Here's the sketch so you can see how I did!

Thanks for visiting today!
