Blue Umbrella

Blue Umbrella 03085
A big Congrats to Penny, the newest Featured Stamper (FS372) on Splitcoast! What a fabulous gallery she has! There are a lot I picked to Case and for my Blue Umbrella card I chose THIS card. I kept the long oval frame but made it narrower, kept the blue flowers but made mine a shower card instead of sympathy and I used an inked/embossed panel for my background. Blue Umbrella cu 03084
I started by inking an embossing folder w/ several blue & lavender distress inks then embossed a white panel. I added a bit more color w/ a lt blue Copic & used a dk blue for the centers. A few little flowers were stamped around the white frame & few more were fussy cut to add on top. The umbrella was stamped twice, colored w/ several blue Copics & I used a stylus on one to add some depth then attached it on top of the other umbrella w/ foam tape.

Congrats again, Penny..enjoy your week! Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Oh Julie, this is so pretty. I love the umbrella and how it pops. Your blue is gorgeous.

  2. Love the monochromatic look. The umbrella popped up like this is gorgeous along with your “shower” of little flowers falling around! Love it, Julie.
