April Showers ~ ATCs With Attitude

We are more than halfway through April. Have you been awash in April Showers and hoping for May flowers? The former is the theme for this fortnight's ATCs With Attitude challenge. We want to see your celebration (or not) of all of the lovely showers that the month of April brings us.

For my ATC, I was lucky enough to work with Bugaboo Stamps' Ruby Calendar girl April. I love Bugaboo stamps, and both Ruby and Stella always bring a smile. They both have attitude, different from each other as that might be. Ruby was coloured with Prismacolor pencils, fussy cut, and given black dimensional dots using Scribblez fabric paint. It dries so shiny and keeps its raised shape once dry. Ruby's glass lenses were given a shine with Glossy Accents and her earrings with Black Diamond Stickles.

The ATC base (2.5 x 3.5") was cut from black textured cardstock. The paper which has water droplets all over it comes from Colorbok's Textures papers. Dew Drops were added here and there to highlight some of them and provide greater dimension and shine. The sentiment was computer generated and matted with red cardstock. The word NOT was given an extra mat of hot pink and then mounted on foam dots to emphasize Ruby's dismay at the type of rain she is getting. She's still looking for that special place where it actually does rain men :)

Thanks for visiting Ruby and me today. We always appreciate that you take the time to do that. if you have a minute, be sure and pop by the ATCs With Attitude blog and see how the rest of the DT interpreted this challenge. It's worth the trip :)

Life is good; so is art.

This is such a fun ATC Bonnie, I love Ruby's umbrella hat (what a great idea by the artist), those raised rain drops are amazing and I adore that sentiment. A wonderful ATC! Hugs, Anne x

Great image and so fitting for the theme. Ruby's got some real attitude and she's not afraid to show it.
