Singing in the Rain...

 It was a foggy evening, the moon was out , there was a light drizzle coming down and she splashed and danced in the puddles as her curly hair frizzed with the humidity.  Sounds like the first sentence to a mystery or vampire novel!
As always, I love Mo Manning's artwork and this one is certainly fun to use.  I colored the focal image with Copics, and then used Distress Inks on the edges of the panel.  I also stamped flowers by Prickly Pear directly on the panel and then on the blue paper scraps used in the background.  The blue ones were punched out by the Prickly Pear dies that match the stamps shape.  Three different sizes were put together with the yellow brad as a center.  The moon was punched out of yellow scraps and added - and, if you look closely, you can see the spots stamped on the blue background panel with VersaMark using a pencil eraser.  These were embossed with clear EP.
