Welcome to day 3 of the April Release from Newton’s Nook Designs. I hope you are having fun with the reveals so far. Today, we have an absolutely darling set that is super clever and sure to bring a smile. It is called Umbrella Pals.
So all the umbrellas in the stamp set are little critters and it is such fun to use!! I thought these two bears worked great together! I colored them with my Zig Clean Color markers and then created the background with the markers too. To do that, I scribbled some of the ink on a clear blog and spritzed with a bit of water, the put the block on my paper. I did this a few times to get the layered look on the background.
I thought it would be fun to add a bit of sunshine under the umbrella with the yellow as a nod to the sentiment. As an additional bit of brightness, I put the colored layer onto a yellow base so that the recipient gets that extra surprise of color when they open the card. I thought a few clear drops would be appropriate for the gray section able the umbrellas.
I hope you enjoy today’s card and I know you will love the DT’s projects. Now for your chance to win!!
