Sunshine Umbrella cu06577

Sunshine Umbrella 06578
For my card today, I was thinking along the lines of the sun coming out after a rain. To make the background, I white embossed the Belles Vignes on white then sponged on the distress inks. I used a water brush to splatter it with water (for the lighter rain drops) then used a white spray I made by mixing a little white acrylic paint and water in a mini mister & spritzed it on. I think I used about 1 part paint to about 4 parts water. Then it was die cut w/ the largest die of the Flourished Star Pattern dies. The sun was also white embossed on another piece of white, die cut & w/ the circle die still in place, I sponged on the colors. I didn’t like the way the hills turned out, so I did them over, fussy cut them & added them on top. For the yellow layer, I didn’t have enough of the right color of yellow, so I used a couple of yellow Copics around the edges before I attached the turquoise layer on top. The umbrella was die cut 3 times & I shortened the very top one by moving the edge of the die up and cutting just that part. A Scor-Pal was used to add the score lines on the top 2 in order to fold them a bit. I wanted it to look as if the umbrella was being folded up to put away. The clouds  & greeting were added to finish.

Here’s a look at the inside.
