Hello again! It’s time for another challenge at Cards in Envy. For the next two weeks, we’ll be focusing on the theme of “April showers”.
For my card, I pulled out a stamp set I haven’t used recently because I felt the image was pretty close to perfect for the theme, and I created a little scene with it. The raindrops are dry embossed. The chick and the umbrella were stamped on scraps of cardstock and cut out and paper pieced to the scene. I used a marker to color in the chick’s beak. I drew in the umbrella “pole” because it was easier than trying to stamp it in. Even though the stamp set with the chick image includes a few rain-related sentiments, I decided to go with something different that I felt was more versatile. The layout for this card is kind of a mirror-image reversal of Freshly Made Sketches challenge #132.
So what will you do with this theme? Create your A2 sized card, remembering to keep it less than 1/4″ thick, and share it with us at Cards in Envy by 7:00 p.m. Eastern time Sunday, May 4. We’d love to see your artwork!
