April Showers

over on Lili's little fairies challenge this week the challenge is transport, that is using anything that can be used as transport fairy wings, cars, boats skates etc i chose a lili of the valley image that was free with one of the crafting magazines (i cant remember which) im sure the bunny flying with an umbrella is still transport even if its not conventional.
I coloured my image with promarkers, and then inked the cloud back ground (again!)

Ive used a mixture of pink petticoat and My Minds Eye papers they are all matted onto bazzill card, and the edges have been coloured with colorbox egg plant ink pad.

Ive used Wild orchid flowers, the sentiment is also lilli of the valley, the cabochon is from my old button box . As its April and its done nothing but rain on and off i decided to include a few rain drops on my image, i used stardust stickles for the rain and also covered each edge with them.

Ive entered this card in the following challenges:

simon says stamp - April showers bring spring flowers

papertake weekly - april showers (or water water everywhere)

papercraft star - umbrellas

On to a very sad note my uncle Harvey passed away last night, it was a blessing for him to be out of pain and suffering but heartbreaking for the family, thanks to everyone for your kind words. RIP Harvey 1939 - 2012 forever in our hearts xx
