Drip Drip Drop Little April Shower...

It's my teamie Sarinda's turn to challenge us over at Stampotique and she has chosen April Showers Bring May Flowers. I've had another go at making a journal page.
The background is lots and lots of Pan Pastels. These all blend together so nicely and are perfect to stamp on.
 Lots of stencilling, painting and background stamping, then my raindrops have been added in Pewter Distress Stain through a stencil.
I'm continuing my love affair with tissue tape, I've inked up the stamp then just laid over the bits I wanted. Ooh look... inky fingers again :-)
My tree has been painted with Dylusion inks, the lovely bunny has been stamped onto tissue paper and coloured with Prisma pencils, and the shrooms have been painted with watered down Distress inks.
Stamps used
Journey Collage
Vintage Script
Row of Numbers
Rainy Day
Mushroom Forest

I had a fab time making this and I'm sure you will enjoy playing along with us too. Check out what my other teamies have made then please join in.
