Dancing in the rain

Hi everyone, 
We've had plenty of April showers, they said on the news that 1950 was the last time we had this much rain.

I thought this would be the perfect stamp to use.


I stamp the Dancing in the rain with Memento Coco Ink and layered it onto brown paper.

The cute little Pig in Puddle and the Leafy Tree Branch was stamped and colored with Copic markers. Then I used Memento Summer Sky and stamped over the top of the image with the Raindrop Background.These were layered onto blue card stock that was embossed in a Dotted Swiss embossing folder then brown card stock and a white card.

Have some fun today, what ever the weather is doing.

I hope you will join in the challenge this week it's Neutrals. 

Have a wonderful day,
