April Showers

April showers bring May flowers.... How many times have you heard that phrase over the years?  Well today I'd like to share a card I made inspired by that phrase.

I started off by printing off the April digi from SimplyBStamps and then coloring it using both my prismacolor and copic markers.  Once my coloring was complete, I stippled some Tim Holtz tumbled glass and broken china distress inks around the image before layering.  I also stamped my card and all layers using an old wood mounted Posh Impressions rain stamp I've had in my stash for years before sponging the matching dye inks around each stamped layer.  Finally, I added some yellow flower brads from my stash along with some yellow & orange silk flowers.  To finish off the card, I added blue waterfall ice stickles to all the colored rain drops in the digital image before adding some additional ice stickle "rain drops" for added effect.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
