Puddle Hopping Anyone?

This image reminded of being young (a long time ago LOL) and jumping in the puddles when the April showers came.  Isn't it cute.  The theme this week at Crafty Creations Challenge the theme is rain showers.  Our hostess this week is Melissa, if you have never visited her blog please go check it out, she is awesome at coloring with Copic markers.  The sponsor this week is Some Odd Girl and her images are unique and very adorable. Her is the one I chose to use for this challenge.

This image also fits into the theme at My Sheri Crafts which is April showers. 
I colored her using my Copics, I am getting a little better at it as I use them more, still no where near Melissa's talent.  Although you can't see it well in the picture, I covered the boots, and umbrella with Glossy Accents.  The puddle I covered with Crackle Accents to give it more a cracked water look.  I found this paper with clouds on it in my stash and thought it was perfect for this image.  I hand cut out an extra cloud and popped dotted it.  The hat on the right hand corner of the circle is a sticker and feels like a real rubber hat.  The rain drops are also stickers.

Other challenges I have entered this card in:
Crafty Catz  April Showers
Crafty Calendar  April Showers
The Paper Variety  April Showers
Raise the Bar  April Showers

Thanks for stopping by and stop by Crafty Creations and join in the fun this week.
Now I have to give a special shout out to my dear friend Melissa as this is her last week of being on the Design Team at Crafty Creations, we will surely miss her talent here, but you can bet I will visit her blog often and see what she is up to!  BIG HUGS M!
