Tuesday Talk

I found this amazing colour challenge last week - a sprinkle of imagination. The colours just sizzle off the page and remind me of ice poles in the freezer. Could eat them all!

So I combined them with the current Less is More challenge - to use a die cut and came up with this:

I die cut the rectangle first, then used another die to emboss the umbrella onto the rectangle.  Next I die cut the umbrella from three gorgeous in your face coloured doodlebug papers and chopped them into three.  I used one section from each paper to fill the embossed umbrella and coloured in the handle using a promarker pen.

Then I stamped the sentiment and as it mentions flowers I stamped a few random raining flowers around the umbrella. They all got the Wink of Stella sparkle.

Wish it really would rain flowers! We seem to have had more than our fair share of the wet stuff round here recently - and yes I know the garden loves it.

Stamps: Uniko Studio, Flower Power #4
Inks: Memento, lilac posies, rose bud
Paper: doodlebug, take note & kraft in color
Dies: Lil'inker stitched mats rectangles; Clearly Besotted, April Showers
Promarker, meadow green
Embellishments: Kuretake, wink of Stella clear

 Thanks for dropping by today. Your comments always give me a 'YAY!' 



  1. That is interesting! Still trying to figure how you did it. I read the post, then I clicked on your image, for a closer look, Can you save images a little larger? You've got square down to a science. But a larger saved image will blow up big when someone clicks on it. It's a great way to get in there and "see" the detail on someone's card. It is a very clever card from an even more clever chick.

  2. Oh My Gosh! Such a creative mind you have!! Love this image and the way you have it raining flowers.
