The Outlawz Friday Coloring "April Showers" Challenge

Yes, yes, it is actually another new challenge, so that must mean it is Friday. Ye gads, again? My head is spinning at how fast time is flying. I think I say this almost every week, but I don't think I am the only one to feel this way. Right? 

Anyway, we have an April Showers challenge, which means you can do a project about rainy weather, umbrellas, etc., etc., etc. I managed to combine the rain with the umbrella and added a dragon for good measure. Unique? Yes, but it is a fabulous image by Lisa Victoria, called Rain Dragon. And it is carried by Sweet Pea Stamps, our fantastic April sponsor! As I mentioned last week, the prize this month is your choice of four digis. Good luck narrowing it down! There are so many wonderful images, that you can literally spend hours looking at them all! To enter, just color an image for your project with any medium you wish. Easy peasy, right?

I took my color inspiration from my DP, which is from the Prima All About Me collection. And I paired this DP with Stampin' Up CS. I printed the dragon on X-Press It BC and colored it with my Copics:  

Dragon/Rain: BG70, BG72, B32, B34, B37, B39, YR00, YR01, YR02
Umbrella: YG61, YG63, YG67

My design is quite simple. I merely added some Memory Box Petite Umbrella die cuts and some ribbons. So that is all for this week. 

Another week with little chatter from me. I will try to make it up to you next week. In the meantime, do check out the wonderful inspiration by my very talented teammates: Carla, Kathi, and Laine. And then play along with us, won't you? 

Have a fantastic weekend!
