After the rain....Diva Challenge 168

'After the rain' - one of many of the songs by Sting, whose music I love! This and the challenge set by Laura on 'I am the Diva' this week have inspired this little tile. Having just started a new job, working more hours than I used to, I have found myself rather short of tangling time...so this was done very quickly last night, sitting in bed.
It was fun to do and I went to sleep feeling pleased with myself.

Rain and Raindotty tangles.
Drawn with black pen and 2B pencil; colour added via BeFunky photo editor - 'Cooler' effect


Hope you like it!

Thanks for looking - please let me know what you think. And as always, a big thank you to Laura for giving us these challenges.



Here's the song by Sting too....

  6. Beautiful. It reads "rains" and feels also a bit like snow :) Excellent use of the soft blues.

  10. I haven't come across Raindotty before but it's perfect here and the love the splashes. We've had plenty of splashing rain lately so may well use it soon myself. Best of luck with the new job too. Linda x

    1. I've used Raindotty quite a bit before, so it was a natural choice! I know it's raining in the UK...hope it stops soon, but those little splashes are quite cute! Thank you. Axxx
