Team Emerald - Hostess Melissa 
April Week #1 "April Showers"

Please join us this week and other challenges in April... Remember you have all month to create to be eligible for recognition as one of the Top 10 "Darlings" 

AND if you create a project for each challenge in the month of April, you will earn a badge as an H2H Addict for Perfect Attendance.  For additional inspiration on this Challenge hop on by to see what other Design Team members have created.  Hope this gives  you some inspiration and enthusiasm to link your artwork as a participant ... we look forward to your creativity.    

For my H2H DT card "April Showers" chose a Digital from Craftin' Desert Divas...Inspiration was "Spring".  

The image was printed on two of the Design Papers in Happy Times and adhered to white cardstock.  One of the design papers was used as the base (full umbrella); and the second design paper was fussy-cut alternating panels and then glued to the full umbrella base. 

The same image was printed on white cardstock and full Umbrella was adhered to this image with 3D foam tape to add dimension.  The legs and hands were colored with Flesh Pen, and the boots and raincoat were fussy-cut from the design papers and glued directly on printed image.  

The completed image was glued to the floral background design paper.  I chose this paper because it framed the umbrella with the small flowers making it appear as a shower of flowers.  Sentiment added, paneled and glued to background.
