Midweek Magnolia #56 Dt - April Showers

Good morning my dears,  I'm here to tell you that the new challenge has just started over at

It's Team A's week to show you our fabulous creations for the theme of April Showers, we would love to see some water featured on your projects

I've chosen Sweet Waterlily from the Summer Memories collection 2012.   She is such a cutie!!  I coloured her with Copics and Derwent soft pencils.  I used my air dry clay (loving this stuff) and a silicone mould to create the wee white flower on my Doohickey heart tag die.  

The beautiful butterfly is from Prima and was very plain until I used Fran-tage shabby pink embossing powder along with cosmic shimmer vintage mica flakes on it.  I'm loving the effect of these amazing powders and fragments.

I will pop a list of items used with links where possible at the bottom of my post for you, in the meantime do have a wonderful day.

Challenges Entered:

Bearly Mine Challenge:  Anything Goes
Deep Ocean Challenge:  Flowers & Fantasy
Papertake Weekly:  Bingo this week.  I've chosen the line of Blooms/free/Lace
