Yellow Umbrellas

 Hello All,

Today I am playing along with INKspirational and Double D Challenges. Yellow and gray aren't my favs but that is exactly the reason why I wanted to try this challenge. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

This card is designed with a metal stencil from Spellbinders (I think). I can envision a crowded city street while it's raining. Can you imagine... Crowds!!

The stencil was taped down over a sheet of dark gray cardstock. I used tinted embossing paste that was mixed with shades of yellow. I then added a thin sheet of paste to the stencil to give an ombre look. After it was dry I went back and carved the ribs of the umbrella for more texture and consistency.

After carving, I used a gray ink pad and lightly spread the ink over the paste at an angle to create a sense of rain. You can imagine pools of water washing over umbrellas. I colored between the umbrellas with a lighter shade of gray for contrast.

Challenges Entered:

INKspirational: Challenge 237 - Taxi Picture
Double D Challenges: April Showers


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


All the best,

Shawna, this card is stunning. I didn't quite understand how you made it, but the end result is really amazing. I love your choice of colors, their shades. They're perfect, and I love the streaks on the umbrellas. This is a very inspiring card, Shawn, and thank you for sharing it with us.
Stay safe, my dear friend.
Hugs,
BożenA
