April Showers

Time for another House Mouse & Friends challenge.

House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge #34 - Springtime

When I think of Spring...I think of April Showers.



This stamp is HUGE! My thumb was sore after coloring -- but totally worth it :) I colored a little Clear Spica Glitter Pen over the rain and then topped it off with my clear glaze pen.

I thought it was only in NW England we had rain throughout spring (well often through summer autumn and winter as well!!)
I just love this image - and you're right it is HUGE. I have it, I inked it up but am waiting for a week to spare to start colouring it!!! You've coloured it so beautifully and the layout compliments it so well.
