April Showers Fable from Faery Ink

Hello everyone and Happy April! I'm here to share some Faery Ink  inspiration with you today. I am sure hoping April showers will bring May flowers, or at least that the showers will end soon. I feel like it's rained daily here since the beginning of this month. I am not a fan of rain, it makes me very sleepy. Anyway, I know you will join me this month in LOVING the fabulous images Amanda has created for us all.

For this month's inspiration project, I chose to play with April Showers Fable Digi Stamp which is available in the Faery Ink Shop. I really love this image, adored coloring it, especially being able to have fun with the way I did the raindrops and the background.

This is the inside of my card - I love this sentiment, it goes so perfectly with the image, don't you think?

Images is colored with Copics.
Hair: E59, E08, E19, YR21

Face: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R21

Lips: R24, R22

I colored all her clothes and umbrella with various combinations of the following E39, E37, E35, E33, E31, E30, RV99, RV69, RV66, R39, R37

I used several different cool greys for the sidewalk - C7, C5, C3. Raindrops done with B45 and B41 and then blended out with my water brush filled with Copic blending solution. Then I added Stickles to make them sparkly. I love the way they turned out:) I used B01, B00 and B000 for the sky and again used my water brush with the blending solution. Finally I added in the rainbow using really subtle shades of each color of the rainbow R01, YR00, Y00, G00, B00, BV00, V000. I have never been bold enough to add anything like this before, but I am becoming more confident in my coloring and attempting to try new things and I am really pleased with the results.

Sure hope you like my creation and hopefully it has given you some inspiration.
