The sun will come out tomorrow

But in the meantime, let “April Showers” Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground brighten your day. With all the different adorable elements, there are many reasons to make you smile.

This cheery blend from the April 2021 release includes clouds, umbrellas, rain drops and lots of sunshine! It gave this dreary card the bright balance it needed.

I created my cloudy background by layering different techniques. First I blended various Distress Inks in different blues, then I splattered water. Next I stamped the clouds with Alabaster ink from Brutus Monroe. I stamped the blue raindrops and puddles at the bottom in Chipped Sapphire Oxide Ink. Lastly, I pulled some elements from the “April Showers” Blend to add more shimmering rain. For this shaker, I used and exacto knife and hand cut out the cloud. The boots, colored with Prismacolors, are from Brutus Monroe. The sentiment is from a Stampin’ Up set.

The cheery colors and elements really brightened up this card. You can get “April Shower” and many other awesome Sparkle Blends at the shop. Then you know the sun will come out because when your package arrives, it will shine!
