Hello all! I hope you are well? First, thank you so much for the comments you have left me, they mean a lot! I am sorry I am behind with my commenting, I have been busy making things and going to Paris, trying to make the most of the holidays which are almost finished, so please bear with me, I hope to be able to catch up with you all tonight and this weekend!
The card I am showing you today was made with two challenges in mind, but it started with the Make It Colourful Challenge, which is to colour objects that seem wet without using glaze, only colouring. I have carefully read all the tips and advice by the DT as well as studied their gorgeous cards, and really wanted to give it a try. So here is my make...
A close up, recipe and explanation of how I coloured...

Copics and blender

I tried on a draft image, then worked on the one I am showing you. I worked in two different ways. For the raindrops in the sky, after drawing some lines to suggest rain, I drew drops and used BG000, then B91, C1, a bit of C3 at the bottom and B91 again on one side of the drops. If my line got too thick, I used my colourless blender inside the drop to get some of the white back inside the drop.
Now for the objects and characters, I coloured my whole image, leaving no part uncoloured. Then, magic weapon, I took my colourless blender and drew tiny drops, on the umbrella, the frog, the boots and a few on the girl. Then I underlined the drops on one side with one hue darker than the area I was in, and added a tiny spot with the same Copic inside the drops. The reason I worked that way is that my white gel pen drew too thick lines and I was not satisfied, so that's the alternative method I tried. The only place where I have used my white pen is the puddle.
Last view and challenges...
I am entering my card into:
Make It Colourful - #30 Make It Wet
The Pink Elephant - TPE112 Stitching (sponsored by Tiddly Inks, which gave me the idea of using a TI image)
That's all from me! Thank you very much for your visit, off to start catching up:-)!
