I'll Be Your Umbrella

I can't believe that Christmas is over so quickly and in a fews days we will be in 2016.

I haven't been doing too much crafting in the last couple of days but I have been watching some YouTube videos showing Copic colouring and card making. It's inspiring me to do some more colouring, so I looked through my stamps and ended up using a stamp I hadn't used before. I used the Under My Umbrella cling stamp by Art Impressions and ironically did not colour it with Copics but instead used Distress Markers and water on watercolour paper.

Because the image is quite large and I die cut it into a circle, my card ended up being 5 1/2 inches square. I actually coloured/drew my own background with the distress markers. I coloured one rain drop on a rain drop stamp with tumbled glass distress marker and stamped in on the umbrella. I then covered the rain drops with glossy accents to make them look wet.

Here is a couple of pictures of my card.
