April Showers Bring May Flowers

A lot of challenges have the theme: April Showers Bring May Flowers. Time to use the stamp: Gorjuss Puddles of Love.

The background is made with Distress Ink that I put on my craft sheet and misted with water. Than I swiped a panel of watercolor paper through the sprayed areas.
For the raindrops I used my handmade stamp (see picture below). First I stamped the raindrops with a light blue ink and than I added glossy accents with Dimensional Magic .
I also used the glossy accents on the boots, now they look like real yellow gumboots!
