Umbrellas

Hello Everyone,

Today I will be playing along with the Double D Challenge and Twofer Challenge. I love this stencil and am so glad I had a chance to show it off. Here are my cards for today, enjoy!



First Card

I traced the outline of the umbrellas with white ink on black paper. I then took out my colored pencils and colored the umbrellas in the rainbow order.
I thought to mount them on white paper
brought out the white outline of the umbrellas.
The sentiment is very clever. It is a fantastic play on words. Plus a great message. I stamped the message and embossed it white. It looked horrible so I thought I would stamp it again using black ink. AHH... Much better.
Second Card
Submitting to Double D Challenge

A lovely spring card using the same stencil from the first card. Firstly, I sprayed the stencil with a light layer of Pixie stencil spray and laid down the stencil and taped it down. I took my Zig markers and colored only the tops of the umbrella then blended it out with an aqua brush.

I wanted to give the impression of rain on the
tops of the umbrellas by using color for movement.
The sentiment was stamped in black and die cut with a faux stitch for a bit of differentiation.
It is big bold and well... Wonderful!

Challenges Entered:
Twofer Card Challenge: Challenge #26- Rain/Umbrellas 
Double D Challenges: Showers and Flowers
using the second card for the challenge.

 

Thank you so much for stopping by and I do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. I hope you all have a fantastic day and lots of good crafting vibes headed your way.

All the best,

Shawna, your multitude of umbrellas are delightful whether in the bold black or the soft pastels. Thanks for playing along at Twofer Card CHallenge #26.

Two FABULOUS cards Shawna! Your rainbow umbrella card on the black cardstock is so striking and LOVE the sentiment too! Your water color card is my favorite...just something about the softness of the colors makes me think of gentle rain and how soothing the sound is. Lovely, lovely cards! Thanks so much for sharing with us at The Twofer Challenge!! :0)

Your umbrella cards are awesome using that stencil! I love the boldness of the rainbow colors on black and agree with you about the white lines and great sediment! But my favorite is the watercolored second card. You worked those colors brilliantly! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #26! Take care and keep safe! Hugs, Darnell
