I coloured this image
with promarkers a couple of weeks ago and didn't get around to using it until now. I just love the way the aqua, pink and white go together don't you? Having coloured the image I then distressed and glittered the edges and added glitter to the 'rain'. I also distressed and glittered the pink layer behind the image. The circular sentiment stamp is one of the new LOTV 'Additions' stamps available here. These are great as you can add different words in the centres for different occassions. The ribbon slider has been made using a punch I bought years ago and was sadly neglected at the back of a drawer. I hope you like this one, thanks for looking.
