Fusion {April Showers}

Today, I have a card to share for the Fusion {April Showers}:
 
 
I was inspire by both the photo and the sketch to make my card,
pairing the adorable alligator from Reverse Confetti's Later Alligator & Weather It Together.
 
 
I stamped the umbrella from Weather It Together and then masked off the handle
to stamp the alligator.
I actually started stamping this card at the Sunday School Card Club and demonstrated
masking to them -- their reactions were so fun to the "magic" of masking!
I coloured these in with my Zig markers and a paintbrush and water.

 
I scored my diagonal lines and then masked off the area with post-it notes
and blended Hawaiian shores ink onto my card front.
I added some more colour to my background using a grey Zig marker and water.
I diecut my clouds using the Weather It Together Confetti Cuts
and stamped my sentiment over my ink blending.
 
 
 

 
 
Thanks for looking!

Oh how cute! This is just a fun card, and it will bring smiles to anyone who sees it! LOVE that RC alligator, and those gridded clouds really add a nice contrast to your rainbow umbrella. Great take on both sides of the Fusion. Sweet! Bev
