My card was based on rainbows and the phrase April showers.
The NBUS umbrellas were die cut from scraps of smooth Bristol paper. The solid umbrellas were coloured with various rainbow colour distress Oxide inks with a mini blending tool. They were then spritz with water, and after a few seconds, blotted with a paper towel. Once completely air dried, the umbrella outlines were adhered on top. For some sparkle, clear shimmer was added to each section. Had I thought of it beforehand, I would have added the shimmer to the whole solid umbrella before attaching the outline.
The NBUS sentiment was stamped with Archival black ink before the panel was mounted to a white top folding card base to be assembled.
