Bloom in adversity

Hi everyone! Here is my take on the Less is More one layer challenge. We are supposed to use splatters this time around. Here is my take on it.

I did my splatters using the new distress color mermaid lagoon. I added a few drops of reinker into a mini mister and added some rubbing alcohol, then spritzed it once. My objective here was to create the essence of rain.

The tulip stamp is from Stamps by Judith and colored with markers and huffed on. Sentiment is from LJD Pretty Poppies from My Favorite Things.

Pretty quick, clean and simple. Also adding this to SSS Wednesday challenge of spring flowers/April showers. 
I'm also adding this into the Addicted to CAS word challenge of Showers.  Thanks for stopping by!
