Delightful Wednesday – April Showers!

Hello there! I’m back again!!

Today it is my turn to post a Wednesday project on the Digital Delights blog and as it is now April (I know!) Sandy and I chose April Showers (water related designs) as our theme.

I used the adorable Surfing Jimmie to create a little beach scene and as you can see he is very sensibly avoiding the water due to the marauding shark!  Can’t you just hear the ‘Jaws’ music!! J

I made a very colourful beach umbrella for him to shelter under (he seems to be avoiding that as well!!) using a border die and a coffee stirrer.  I then propped the fab Fun in the Sun Sentiment up against it! 

Dies: Spellbinders ‘Inverted Scalloped Circles’ and ‘Scalloped Borders 2’
Paper/Card: Neenah Solar White – Various from stash
Colouring/Ink: Spectrum Noir markers & pencils
Others: Buttons – coffee stirrer
Hopeless hand drawings (making their long awaited comeback!!): Shark fin - sunglasses - seagulls(!)

So grab a board and surf on over to the Digital Delights Blog where there is fab inspiration for you every day and don’t forget to visit the shop to see Wendy’s adorable designs!

Thanks so much for looking, and have a wonderful day!
See ya!

Colourful hugs
Jane xx
