Catch the Bug Challenge - April Showers and a Sketch

Today's challenge over at Catch the Bug challenge blog is April Showers as well as a Sketch challenge.

As we know April showers bring May flowers, however use your imagination.  Anything that reminds you of water and rain may also be used, you decide.  You can use "water colors", water background, so many options !!  Think paper, embellishments, ribbon whatever strikes you.

And here is the fabulous sketch created by Design Team member, Scrappy.  So this is my take on the challenge. 


I used this adorable image called Turtle Umbrella, such a cutie.  This is another card where following the sketch,  I designed the card first then sized and printed my image to fit the card.  The papers are from Reminisce, I love the patterns but I have to say these are very flimsy papers and prone to tearing.  So I printed the little turtle onto Cryogen paper with my inkjet printer.  Copics used:
Turtle - YG21,YG23, YG93
Hat & Boots - YR16, YR68
Umbrella - YG21, BG11, C1
Handle - E08
Water - B0000, Glossy Accents
Finished size is 5x7.  Be sure to visit Catch the Bug Challenge blog to see what the rest of the design team has created for you.  And join in on the fun for a chance to win BugABoo stamps of your choice.
