I had a bit of a play last night and to help my hand out I created the card I'm sharing for three challenges in one. AnnaBelle Stamps challenged us to make a card in pink, green and kraft and CAS-ual Fridays wants us to just add colour. Wee Memories is having a free for all so that makes three.
The dotted background is from Background by Design 3 from AnnaBelle Stamps stamped with Petal Pink Versacolor ink.
The Backgrounds by Design line of stamps is what drew me to AnnaBelle Stamps in the first place - I do love background stamps. What I didn't know until I bought this set is what makes them the best background stamps ever is how easy they are to line up - I mean, if I can do it, anyone can! :)
I coloured the umbrella from the 'Baby Shower' set by Fiskars in Spun Sugar and Bundled Sage distress inks with a paintbrush and some water added. I used a grey marker to colour the bit of the umbrella you hold onto (what is that actually called? - the handle maybe?) and to add a bit of a shadow to the umbrella trim.
I used watercolour paper for all of the layers except for the cardbase (Kraft).
Well I'm going to stop typing now as the pain is starting to come back - gonna go put on a heatpack I think.
Thanks so much for looking, and I hope you have a good one!
