APRIL SHOWERS BRING MAY FLOWERS

I just received a package in the mail with a swap I participated in. It is a Magnolia calendar swap in the Magnolia-licious yahoo group. My month is April. It was quite fun to make.

I used 2 different images to create this image. The background actually has a sun shinning behind the clouds, but I thought that I could hide the sun with Tilda. Colored the image with copics. Did some sponging for a bit of a cloud effect in the sky. For the puddle and raindrops I used a clear glaze pen.

Thanks for coming by!!

By the way I noticed you live in BC, Canada. ME TOO!!! I feel like the world isn't so big after all when I find out a fellow Magnolicious member lives in the same province!
