Everyone knows the saying "April Showers bring May Flowers" and thats what this week's Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday #54 is all about! And it seriously couldn't have been assigned to a better week - this week's weather forecast for my area is a complete week of RAIN!
So in honor of APRIL SHOWERS, for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday #54 all you have to is create a project using an Umbrella or Hat.
A few weeks ago while browsing some Scrappy Blogs, I came across this quote - "When life gives you Rain, Play in the Puddles" - and immediately knew I wanted to use it for FCCB's Challenge Me Monday #54 APRIL SHOWERS. It became the inspriation for this card.
The card was based on last week's Mojo Monday 184 Sketch.
Now, don't be shocked, but I only used ONE cartridge to create this card! All cuts are from the Create A Critter Cartridge.
The Duckie and Boots were cut at 1 3/4". The Umbrella was cut at 1 5/8". The Puddle is from the "Hippo Accessory" on page 44 of the Handbook and was resized with Design Studio to 1.742" x .472". The little "splash" is from the "Whale Phrase" on page 41 of the Handbook - I snipped off the rest of the phrase.
I used Peachy Keen's PK-754 Critter Faces Set Medium on the Duckie. This is my FIRST time using Peachy Keen Stamps, so I'm still learning how to work with them. But they are the BEST stamps I have worked with - absolutely LOVE them! I can't believe I waited this long to try them out. They give you a smooth and clean stamped image every time. I used the Gelly Roll White Pen to fill in the eyes and an Orange PrismaColor colored pencil for the beak.
To make the Duckie "splash" in the puddle, I snipped off one of her legs and readhered it in an angle.
The senitment was created using Photoshop Elements, as I couldn't find it anywhere else.
That's it for my APRIL SHOWERS card, but head on over to the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog to see the amazing project the remaing DT members have in store for you.
Don't forget to link up your APRIL SHOWERS project using an Umbrella or Hat by Sunday, April 10th at 11:59 EST for your chance to randomly win this week's prize.
