Morning peeps!!!

Wow..Tuesday already!! That must mean its time for Tiddly Tuesday again and a new challenge over on the Tiddly Inks challenge blog.

This week its a theme and the Tiddly Inkers want to see you rain inspired projects. I chose the sweet little owl in his tree called Who Loves You. I printed him out on some linen cardstock and had a chalk colouring day! it felt like ages since I had used my chalks and they go so nicely on the linen card stock.
I made some rain using my pastel blue promarker and then popped some glossy accents over the top to make it look wet!!!
Here's a little close up......

Awwww, he's so cute!! I am not sure its easy to see but my little owl is popped up on some silicone.

For my card base I printed straight onto my linen card using my Funky Hand Craft The Year Away cd. I love the colour on this one, its from the Come What May colourway.
My sentiment is actually some of the verse from one of my favourite Eric Clapton songs!!! I just typed it out on my computer and printed it onto one of my scraps of the linen cardstock and cut it into a square shape.

I chalked over the sentiment in some glittery blue chalk but its a squidge hard to see.

I am popping this is for the Allsorts Challenge blogs April Showers challenge.
