Spring Showers

Pin It

Good morning!  We have had a fabulous week of weather here so far and I'm so happy to be outside in the warm sunshine and out of the stuffy house.   I picked up another By LORi Designs image and couldn't wait to get her on paper.  This is Puddle Jumper - Ella's Umbrella.  I used Jen Shults' DS41 sketch for the layout and then printed the image and colored her with Copic Markers.

I used my Sakura Glaze pen to add shine to the puddle.  I love this effect and I usually add 2 layers of glaze.  Just be sure to let the first layer dry completely before adding the second, otherwise you will get a gooey mess.

Please stop on over to Lori's blog to see the BLD Tuesday Inspiration post.   Thank you so much for stopping by today!
