For the Spring flowers / April showers challenge at www.simonsaysstampschallenge.blogspot.ca/
Hopefully Spring showers will bring May Flowers. It's been a long winter! Ugh!!!!
I made this card using the April Showers clear stamp set from Penny Black. Stamped the boots with Hero Arts pool ink, then coloured the flowers with a yellow marker and added some yellow Stickles to the centres. The umbrella was embossed in white on flowered card stock (Sunny Side pack from Pebbles) and turquoise Stickles added here. The raindrops were clear embossed and then I added some glossy accents to highlight each drop. Also added glossy accents to the top and souls of each boot. The sentiment is a combination of two sets. Card background papers are from the Echo Park 6x6 pack Sweet Day.

Made for Jacqueline's Grid tag challenge.
I do use a few of my scraps but also resurrected my Twinkling H20's and some old embossing powder. I used the Silhouette Vines stamp by Hero Arts but stamped on it's side.
Coloured all the flowers with various H2O's and used amethyst embossing powder for the complete background. Added some glossy accents to the 2 butterflies.
Unfortunately the photo doesn't do the card justice as the flower colours really do shimmer.

For the Tuesday Trigger at http://www.moxiefabworld.com/2013/04/tuesday-trigger-magical-magnolias.html
I used a blossom background paper on which I stamped a floral stamp from The Stamp Barn (CHSH348M) and embossed in white. I added Hero Arts butter bar ink over top. I then stamped the smaller floral stamp (CHSH349E) which was also white embossed. I added shades of pink Blending Blox ink (Marvy). Added some punched leaves and a sentiment from Penny Black's April Showers set.
Blended the edges of the background with some more Butter Bar Ink to soften it a bit.
Enjoy and thanks for looking.

Entered in the April Hero Arts sketch challenge.
The white background is from the ZigZag embossing folder set from Lifestyle Crafts. There are two folders and the one I used here was the tweed design.
The flower (HACG250) was white embossed then coloured using Inktense pencils. I also used this stamp which I clear embossed randomly on the green strip of cs.
Added yellow polka dot washi tape, a bright pink button with some dark brown twine.
The sentiment is from the BoBunny stamp set #10105761.
