April Showers ....

Hello again!  I've been bad.  My "to be inked" stamp pile is getting out of control which means only one thing.  I need to frantically get stamping before April 14th.  Today's newbie is one that I've been wanting for ages.  I just LOVE the umbrellas in Scattered Showers when you paper piece them.  The little guy is Emery from Verve.  Isn't he precious?  So, here's the card and the deets follow.


Stamps:  Scattered Showers (PTI), Emery (Verve)
Paper:  Crumb Cake (SU), Aqua Mist, White (PTI), Hopscotch (BG)
Ink:  Pumice & Broken China Distressed Inks, VersaMark
Other:  Spellbinders dies, rick rack trim, clear EP


I had a bit of an oops with the sentiment.  The first blue I chose was too light for the kraft base.  When I tried to stamp over it with a darker ink, it wasn't quite perfect.  Oh well.  The shadowing looks kinda intentional to me.  LOL  Then again, I may just have to cut & stamp a cute tag to go over top.  When I have time that is. 

Thanks for dropping by.

Love the paper pieced umbrella, and the cute little elephant! I think I need to paper piece that umbrella myself, thanks for the inspiration!

This is an adorable set with the umbrella paired with the elephant. Great idea. I think the sentiment looks fine, but I have covered up boo-boos with tags many a time myself. Great card today. Get those stamps inked, the 15th is coming up fast!
