Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head with Heart 2 Heart Challenges

Welcome to this week's challenge at Heart 2 Heart Challenges.   Spring is finally coming to Memphis.  The beautiful trees are blooming as well as the daffodils and tulips.  So what is our challenge?  How about Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head?  

I don't know about you, but I would like a little warm sunshine!  LOL  But, to play along we would like to see your artwork with  rain, umbrellas, rainbows, or something that reminds you of Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head.

I just couldn't bear the thought of more rain so I did include the umbrella, but I also included a nice warm sun!  Here is the card I made for this challenge:

I am so proud of the coloring I did on this card with a combination of Close to My Heart markers and my Copics.  I used 2 stamp sets:  Paper Doll (D1547) and A Bowwow (A1126).  I screamed with delight when I saw Paper Doll in our new catalog. I knew that I would have to really learn how to use alcohol markers to do it justice.  I think that I have the blue jeans down.  They are colored with the two Outdoor Denim markers and the Indian Corn Blue Light marker.  Amazing what you can do with our markers!

The little girl's hair and skin are done with my Copics, but all of the rest is Close to My Heart's alcohol markers.  I am learning how to color hair and certainly have not mastered it yet, but am getting better at it.  My little dog is colored with CTMH Slate markers.

Once again I am using the Claire Paper Pack and a bit of the My Stickease that goes with it.  The sun was cut with the CTMH Cricut Artiste cartridge.  The umbrella comes from the Chantilly Dimensional Elements.
