Hello and welcome..

We've had friends visiting this weekend, from Canada, so I've not had much spare time, which is why I'm showing you a 'blast from the past' card

I really do like the simplicity of this and revisiting it has prompted me to make a few more showing different coloured umbrellas

 A CAS card for today's offering

I started with a  5"x7" white card base and cut another piece of the same card a little smaller
The umbrella and sentiment is from a freebie set included in one of Creative Stamping Magazines.  I think it could be from last year!

I stamped the sentiment first using StazOn Jet Black Ink then stamped the umbrella with Archival Ink Coffee

I used a pale orange watercolour pencil to colour in the umbrella and then a pale brown pencil., from the same set, to add polka dots

I didn't want to use any of the sentiments included in the free gift so I typed one, stamped the umbrella again, in the bottom right hand corner, then, very lightly, coloured it

On the card front I added several drops of Glossy Accents around the umbrella
  • White card ~ Papermill Direct
  • Autumnal Twist Clear Stamp Set ~ freebie/Creative Stamping
  • Derwent Watercolour Pencil Set
  • StazOn Jet Black Ink ~ Tsukineko
  • Coffee Archival Ink Pad ~ Ranger
Watercolour pencils
Freebie Stamp Set

Now for the toppers and stamp winner
