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.
