CDS Sneak Peek - Charliene April Showers

Welcome to day 2 of the Clear Dollar Stamps sneak peeks! Today I have a brand new Charliene stamp set to show you called April Showers. When I first saw this set I HAD to have it! She's so adorable and come complete with a puddle, rubber ducky, rain drops and some really sweet sentiments :)

I picked these pretty papers to go with the a very easy colour combo DT challenge of using any shades of pinks and greens on a card. Since this image is a super fun one and the papers are whimsical I decided to add a thick coat of Lime Green Stickles to the olive cardstock matting. Whoa, does this card shine! *grin*

I {heart} this sentiment from the set and it was a perfect fit for my 1 1/4" circle punch center :) All of my images have been watercoloured with various SU Re-Inkers and an Aqua Painter. I have used 2 different colours of Stickles (Lime for the matting and Crystal for the accents on the puddle) and the puddle has a coat of crystal effects on it.

We have more sneak peeks happening today so please pop by the blogs below to check them out! Happy clicking :)
