Gorjuss - Puddles of Love

It's Wednesday and that means I get to show you some more great stuff from icopic!! I know I always say "I had a lot of fun with this card" but it's so true!! Look at this Gorjuss stamp called Puddles of Love:
I thought I would have a little play with trying to actually color a water puddle and rain drops instead of adding them with glossy accents. Here's a close up:
The raindrops were mostly done with my colorless blender and then I added a little shadow underneath. I was so inspired by these amazing papers from the Wild Rose Studio Summer Fiesta pack!   The sky was airbrushed with C1. I drew my sidewalk with a black copic multiliner.  
Here's the copic colors I used but I just noticed I left off the colors of the puddle!
I am pretty sure I used BG10, BG000, B00, BG72. I left some of the sidewalk white and I also added in some Stardust glitter pen. I did that on the raindrops also. 

My sentiment is from SP and Company.   The outside edge of my Designer paper was grunged with Copic Opaque just using my finger.
That's all for me today but I hope I'll get to see your creations in our challenge this week : )
