April Showers

It's raining, It's pouring,
the old man is snoring.
He went to bed, bumped his head
and couldn't get up in the morning!

Guylou’s Inimitability has a challenge starting today and going on until April 21st. Now this is going to be  fun and different! And like with any challenge you need to follow the guide lines. And the main guideline to this challenge is: you have to incorporate an umbrella into your card or project. See fun and different! Told ya!
Do you have an umbrella? Is it a small compact one that you can keep just about anywhere? Or is it one of those long black ones that you always see the heroine in a movie carrying? Do you have an umbrella stand? I have one umbrella; a compact one with roses on it. It came with a bag that I got from one of those book deals. You know the ones you have to order so many per month? Well I got the bag and umbrella for free for signing up. Oh, and we have no stand, just a coat rack. You would think growing up in Florida that I had several, but believe it or not I did not. No wellies or rubber boots either. Kinda funny when you think about it.
Anyway back to the challenge…we got to play around with Ben. Now Ben is a cute and curious little boy that like any kid likes to play in the rain! I still like to jump in puddles myself…with the right shoes of course! Here is the card that I made using Ben:

I used:
My Minds Eye...Stella and Rose ~ Hattie
Dimensional Glaze for the drops and the puddle
Sidewalk: N4, N3, N2, N1 Puddle: B23, B32, B0000, B21 Sky: B93, C3, C1
Skin: E00 Hair: E13 Slicker, Boots & Hat: Y18, Y15 Pants: E55 Shirt: B95, B45

I love the little sidewalk scene you created for him and love that huge puddle!!! Your papers are perfect for this and I really love the way you did the sentiment!! Thank you for welcoming me to the team :)

Brenda said...

Wow Kim, I love the sidewalk, rain, and puddle. Very cool. The sentiment is perfect!!! Super fun card!

Gina L said...

Great sentiment, girl. I love how you made his own little scene for Ben to stand in, too. As for umbrellas, I have horrid luck with losing and breaking them, but I own quite a few. I even have one of those big ones, but it's PINK! Who needs is the best color in the whole world!

Kim you did an incredible job with this adorable image! I love how you made it a total outdoor scene and that you used dimensional glaze for the puddle and raindrops! And great job on finishing the inside as your paper and color choices.
