Penny Black April Shower

Does this card look somewhat familiar to you? Well I created a card (shown below) a few days ago using the same ink and paper! I actually have that "blue sky white clouds" patterned paper for a long long time, but since I tend to make floral, cute/girlie or vibrant cards, I never really have a chance to use it. I'm so glad that I've been participating in card challenges. It's only been a week since I first entered my glitter butterfly card over at the Paper Players, but I've already learned so much during the past week! I created my first mixed media project, tried different sketches at various blogs, and purchased different stamp sets to create cards that I normally wouldn't create! 

I mixed and matched the hedgie image from Penny Black (Party Time) with the weather images from SugarPea (Whatever the Weather). 
The hedgie was holding a present in the original image, but since this time's theme is April (I chose to go with April showers), I decided to let him hold an umbrella instead. After partially inking up and stamping the hedgie, I used a cutting knife and cut along his little hand. That way I can tuck the umbrella under his palm and it'll look like he's holding it :)
Then I watercolored him using my Versa Magic ink pads. After that I stamped all the other images: the umbrella, the cloud, the rain and the sentiment and heat embossed them with either clear or silver embossing powder. I added a stripe of glitter tape from Stampin' Up, and that pretty much finished off the card!
