April Showers

April Showers inspired this quick card I stamped up the other day and I really like how it turned out.  First, I rubber stamped the umbrella on the watercolor paper.  Then I stamped the umbrella on a scrap paper and cut it out, and placed it over the umbrella on my card (masking technique).  Then I stamped the verbena flower head around in blue - trying to resemble some clouds I guess.  Then I watercolored the umbrella with red and  colored in the handle.  After that I added a few raindrops.  Around the edge I took a blue gelato went around the edge kind of heavily, then smudged it toward the center.  Added the stamped words "April Showers" then inked the edge with black.  Pretty simple,  but I love the look.

Stamps Used: Flower, Umbrella, Drop
