Summer Umbrella

Good morning crafters and followers.  April already, don't you think this year is going fast or is that just me and my age - LOL. Hopefully April will be good to us with the weather and you are enjoying your Easter with lots of yummy chocolate eggs.
We start a new challenge today at Crafting from the Heart
The theme is Anything Goes and our sponsor is: - 
 My Shopping List

Digi stamp Umbrella
Chameleon pens
white 7x7 base card
white card
6x6 co'ordination card
cosmic shimmer pearlescent pva - spring green

  1. I printed my image out onto Copic X-Press It Smooth Blending Card from Sir Stampalot and coloured it in using my chameleon pens.  I then fussy cut it out using my BSC.
  2. I then cut my background out using my BSC and a free SVG cutting file from Birdscards - background 17 in co'ordinations card.
  3. My white frame was also cut using BSC and a square shape form the machine files.
  4. Once I had assembled my card I dribbled, freehand, a zigzag pattern around the frame using the cosmic shimmer pva glue. First time I have used it this way so would welcome your comments good or bad.
  5. I then completed my card with an organza bow and an embellishment made when I was playing with my melt pot.

I hope you have enjoyed checking out my blog and if you would like to see ideas from the rest of our design team follow the link here to our blog.  Don't forget to enter the challenge whilst you are there for a chance to win a super prize from our sponsor.
