Spring Showers

This weekend I received a small PTI order with a stamp set that I have been in love with for a very long time!  It's "Scattered Showers" and it is so much fun! I love how you can mix and match the tops with the handle!  That is just such a smart way to design a stamp set!


I wanted to make a unique card with this set by making the umbrella look as though it was blowing in the wind.  It is hard to make out in the photo, but I stamped swirls from "Fancy Flourishes" in Champagne VersaMark ink to mimic the wind.  I stamped them on both sides of the umbrella (you can see it better in real life). 


I picked up some pom pom trim from an etsy store a few weeks ago and it was the perfect way to finish off the umbrella!  I inked the edge first with some "giverny green" palette ink and then attached the pom pom strip.  I think it adds a fun touch!  You can see the swirls a little in this photo too.  And, I added the pink dots with a glittery pink gel pen...love those pens! :)


I thought that this would be a cute card for someone having a rough time. 

Thank you for stopping by!
