After the Rain Card II (Fairy Tale Challenge #191)

Hello everyone! :o)

It's time for a new challenge over at Fairy Tale Challenge Blog.

Our theme for this fortnight is #191, Aprilwetter / April Weather, raining cats and dogs.

And here is my take on the challenge: After the Rain Card II.

To make my card I used super cute LMM's Forgotten Scraps 'Polka Dot Pals Rayne' digital stamp.

I printed the image on a watercolor paper and left it dry for a day. I colored the image in watercolor technique using Distress Inks.

I partly colored the image during the 9th 30 Day Coloring Challenge by Kathy Racoosin of The Daily Marker.

As I wasn't sure what I want to do with the image, I left the image until inspiration arrives (I was totally in Rainbow colors for a while :o) ).

Couple days ago, I pulled the image out, as it's totally fitting to our challenge, and finished coloring. I decided to go with similar design as on a card I made last year (here), using same image, quotation and font.

I already had a card layout on my computer from my last year's card, I just moved quotation on the bottom of the card. When I liked a new layout, I printed it out on a white cardsotck paper base.

Then I fussy the watercolored image, traced edges with a black marker, glued the image on the card over the uncolored image and my card was finished. :o)
