Papertake Weekly - Saturated Canary Rainy Days

Afternoon crafters.
Our challenge over at Papertake Weekly  is "April Showers" which is fitting for the weather the UK is now suffering with.
To encourage you to participate we are kindly sponsored by
Whiff Of Joy

I've used another Saturated Canary image, this one is called rainy days.

Now I've got to admit I did find this beautiful image difficult to colour, originally I started with a green dress but couldn't get the shading right so that one ended up in the bin. This is my second attempt and I'm pleased with it

The backing paper has umbrellas on it but its difficult to see them with all the other layers and to soften the edges I've embossed with white powder. The other paper used is from a Jillibean Soup pad.

Copics used - Dress - B000, B00,B02, B45, Apron & Umbrella - Y11, Y02, (I can't remember the darker colour), Wellies - Y11, Y03, G21, Skin - E000,E00, E21, E02, Hair - E53, E31 highlighted with Sepia Prisma Pencil.

Other embellishments - ribbon, flowers, Memory Box fence die, Martha Stewart punch.

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:
Cupcake Craft Challenge - Spring is in the air

Thanks for stopping by today.
