Hi all! Is my card ever apropos for today! It’s raining buckets and has been all morning!
For my card this week, I created my umbrella with more of the left over bits of paper, coming up with this fantastically bright and cheerful striped umbrella. I cut my umbrella twice – once from white and a second time with the striped paper. My background is created using the Swiss Dots background stamp and I randomly stamped Hero Arts Neon inks onto the stamp. My card base is little — only a 4.25 square card. I then cut a rounded rectangle from Grout Gray and glued down my umbrella. Then, I went a little enamel dot crazy. What I love is that the enamel dot colors match the stripes — that is a total fluke, a total happy & bright fluke! My sentiment is from Keep on Rockin‘. I pulled the bottom circles up onto the rectangle and added in yet another four enamel dots that match the umbrella handle.
