Seems I’ve been making a lot of rainbow/umbrella/rain cards lately! But I love umbrellas and the challenge today on the Ways to Use It Challenge (WT526) is April Showers..so I wanted to play. Today I’m using a new greeting & one of the cutest (in my opinion) umbrella images around. Both are from DRS Designs. After coloring & fussy cutting 2 umbrellas (one to pop up on top), I took a piece of white card stock and cut a bunch of bands using large & small petite oval dies then colored them individually w/ Copics. After putting them back together, I added a white layer w/ a circle cut out on top and added the greeting & some raindrops.
I added the umbrella and some stickles on the raindrops and where the bands of the rainbow come together. For the frame, I took the piece I cut the white layer out of, colored it to match my rainbow then put it back around the white layer. Here are the Copics I used and it took about a jillion of them!
Here’s a look at the inside.
Thanks so much for stopping by! If you haven’t, please check out the DRS Designs Thursday Challenge...this week it’s Birthday Blues (make a birthday card & use the color blue somewhere). DRS images are not required and there’s a nice prize up for grabs.
