It's April! And it is such a beautiful time of the year as we are in the middle of Autumn in Australia.
Fittingly, the Creation Design Team Blog Hop is about Nature, Flowers & Showers and the 'Weather Together' Bundle is my go-to for this months theme.
The 2015-2017 In Colours are leaving us in the next couple of months, and I have used the 'Designer Series Paper Stack' polka dots for my creations:
Pretty polka dot parasols on 'Crumb Cake' cardstock.
I am really going to miss this 'In Colour Collection'.
The 'White Stampin' Chalk Marker' is a great tool to highlight features on a card. I used it to outline the handle and stem of the parasol, and the outline of the mat.
I came across an image recently. It was a line drawing of a little girl holding an umbrella, and watercoloured lines of colourful rain. Do you think I can find that little piece of art? - to be giving the artist credit! I thought I saved it to my ever growing Pinterest boards, but no.
From the image of the little girl and her umbrella in the colourful rain, I have made this little fairy from the 'Fairy Celebration' stampet, under the rainbow rain.
It was a tricky one to make; there was masking of the umbrella and fairy to make the 'Brushstrokes' rain with 'Brights Stampin' Write Markers'.
Add a little spritz with the 'Stampin' Spritzer' to make the watercolour effect before stamping. A touch of watercolouring at the end using an 'Aqua Painter' to create the blended rain over the top and side of the umbrella.
