This is my 2nd post today.  If you are looking for the CWWC post please scroll down.

Today's card starts the April challenge at Great Impressions.  Our challenge is 

Image may contain: flower, text and nature

I am using Rainy Day Harry (F605)...isn't he adorable!  I have colored him with Copic markers and added Glastique to give the outfit and umbrella a realistic look.  I fussy cut him out and stamped him again on the background so I could keep the raindrops.  They were too hard to fussy cut.   For the background I used Whimsical Clouds (G426).   I stamped this several times  on the paper and then used it for each of the other stamps.  I have paired these with Under the Weather (E866).  

Remember this challenge goes for one month.  You can enter with any stamps but we love to see Great Impression Stamps so let us know if your using one to get an extra entry.  Here is the prize you could win.

Wonderful creation. Thank you for blessing us with your artwork here at Word Art Wednesday. We are starting another Challenge today and I hope you join us again. Leaving you with the inspiration of God's Word found in 1 Corinthians 16:13-14 which tells us, "Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. Do everything in love."
