April Showers for Crafty Calendar

Hello lovely peeps

It's the first Saturday of the month, so it's time for a new challenge at Crafty Calendar. The theme is "April Showers" or Spring and the sponsors are

Jennifer Nilsson Art ♥︎ Mari Digis ♥︎ Miss Daisy’s Collection ♥︎ We Are 3 

Join us at Miss Daisy Stamps Create & Share Facebook Group to meet the artists, 
share fun & inspiration, receive freebies and special deals. See you there!

For my inspiration card I have used Drops of Love - Jennifer Nilsson Art
 which I brightened to get grey outlines and then printed at 60% size onto a white fabric print from Nitwit.

I printed selected sections of the image onto the top of my background paper (from the Indian Dreams digikit) and cut them out

I coloured a few highlights with Lyra Rembrandt Polycolour pencils
Medium Grey 97
Light Cobalt 44
Dark Carmine 26

For the sentiment I stamped the blank tag from Lili of the Valley's Christmas Sentiment Tag set and stamped one of Woodware's Tiny Phrases inside.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
