April Rain Showers

Time for some House-Mouse fun!

House-Mouse Monday Challenge #143 - It's All About the Weather!
This week we have a great challenge for you.  Anything related to the weather.  ANY kind of weather that you like.  Just make sure your project includes at least 1 House-Mouse or HM Friends image.  Get all the details about the challenge, prizes up for grabs, AND see amazing design team samples on the blog HERE.

I decided to use a HUGE House-Mouse stamp called Special Delivery.  It's a stamp I borrowed from my moms collection. mom loves House-Mouse too! :)

     This pic looks a little blurry...but if you click on it and zoom looks better.

I stamped the image on a Sky Blue cardstock base (from A Muse Studio) and colored a few of the flowers and leaves.  Then I stamped it again on white cardstock.  Most of the image is colored and cut from the white stamped piece.  All the coloring is done with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol.

      Click on the pics for a bigger picture to see more details.

I added White Pigment Gel Pen to the raindrops and then covered with clear glaze. While it was still wet I lightly dusted with Rock Candy loose glitter.  Then I added touches of the same glitter to the flowers.  Ahhhhh...I looooove my glitters! I even made cookies today...and sprinkled them with glitter!
  Nooo...NOT craft glitter...the kind you can eat

The sentiment is white embossed and comes from a set called April Word Puzzle from Close to my Heart.

Well...that's it for today.  Hope you have time to stamp this week.  I have a few more blog posts coming this stay tuned!

Lori, This card is just fabulous. I love that you stamped it twice but no one would ever know it. All the work on your raindrops really paid off, they look terrific. Wonderful coloring here. A very nice job.
