April Showers - Stampotique Challenge #95

It's Wednesday so that means it's Stampotique day, Woo Hoo, another challenge. This week the theme is set by Sarinda, and it's April Showers, pretty apt for us in the UK as we have had so much rain I am doubting that we will ever see the sun again.

I have used some of the stamps from the latest release for my tag. I was a bit torn on this, as I originally was going to use the wording. " If life gives you rain, make rainbows" as I had coloured my background to go with this. But I so loved the quote by Maria and it went so well with Lara staring off into the distance, that in the end I went with the stamped quote.

I used used embossing ink through a mask, removing it before I added the clear powder and heating, it to give the impression of raindrops.

I used the following images.

Enjoy today
You Give me wings

You can now use any stamps for the Challenges, but only one entry per person for each challenge. Two lucky people will be drawn from all the challenges for April who will win a $30 voucher to spend on Stampotique rubber. So make sure you go over to the Stampotique Designers Challenge Blog to enter.

Stampotique Rubber Stamps are available to buy from Stampotique originals, and in the UK you can buy them from Happy Daze.
