Guest Designer for Inkspirational

Hi everyone.  I am here today to share another spring themed card as the guest designer for Inkspirational challenge #132 Spring.

My card was based on rainbows and the phrase April showers.

The sky background was created with a diecut cloud border stencil, a mini blending tool and Tumbled Glass distress ink on a white Stitched Rectangle.

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.
