Color Throwdown #388- Sunshine!!

Good Morning!! Happy Hump Day!! It's time for another set of colors at the Color Throwdown!! Loved all the cards last week!! This week's colors are yellow, blue, green, and white!! 

Aren't these colors and this inspiration pic perfect for spring... April showers!?!

Playing with more new goodies!! Well, some are NBUS goodies (have had them for a "bit" but, my stamping time has been limited- or maybe I just buy too much?)

The pic's not worth a hoot- have to use Ott Lights and need to finesse my set up. 

Used some new and older Verve. The sun and clouds were die cut with Verve's new Partly Cloudy dies. I sponged a little blue ink on the outside of the clouds and stamped the sun with an image from Verve's new Rise Above (love those rays- kind of a mottled appearance- not sure that's the right word?) The umbrella and sentiment are from an older Verve set- Rain or Shine. Well, the boots were my own little attempt since I didn't have a stamp and I really, really wanted some rain boots - drew the outline, stamped with Verve's Bountiful Backgrounds dot image and then fussy cut. Only attempted this once- need a little practice on drawing :)
