April Showers

When I got my first glimpse at the inspiration board for Viva Las Vegastamps! this month I wasn't sure what I was going to create...I love the images and colors but had to step back and 'ponder'.

Today I decided to just sit down and GO...and here is what I came up with.


It has been raining a bit here and even snowed last night, YIKES, so April Showers seemed very appropriate.  The VLVS! images are sunflowers and girl with umbrella facing away.
My tag base is MME On the Bright Side and the umbrella is cut from Echo Park For the Record.  From UmWow Studio; layered clouds, circle confetti mask, alphas one and flair from the dream a little dream set.  I cut the tag with a Tim Holtz die.  Distress ink stormy sky with a Prima raindrop mask, Heidi Swap color shine, May Arts leaves ribbon black, Archival ink, floral bead and thread.

The layered clouds are covered in gesso, ink and outlined with my trusty sharpie.

These chipboard alphas...OMG!  LOVE. THEM!

You have until the end of the month to link up your creation!!  I can't wait to see it!!
