Umbrella Twofer

Hi there! I couldn't find any umbrella stamps in my stash, but luckily I found some stamped images from a Craft Retreat!

I often have to have several attempts before I'm happy with my colouring/stamping etc, but I din't have any spare images, so I've had to make do.

I decided a shaker card would be fun with this image. I coloured with Zig Markers and added sequins and beads in the shaker. The stamps are from Clearly Besotted 'Water Play'.

I hope you can see the subtle stencilled clouds in the background. This was the start for my card, because I found the stencilled panel in my UFO box. I then stamped Penny Black 'Skyline' and the sentiment which is from CASual Friday Stamps. The hippos were again coloured with Zigs.

I'm sharing my cards at the following challenges:-

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog! I love to read your comments:)

  6. Your coloring turned out great, Jenny, and how fortuitous to find the images in your UFO box! Both designs are terrific! I love the shaker card with the hippo splashing in the puddle to emphasize the sediment! And your second design is perfect for these times. Love the light clouds in the background, the cityscape with the black border, and the hippo's two pals!! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #26! Take care and be safe! Hugs, Darnell
