Anyway, as I hadn't managed to enter last weeks challenge over at Less is More thought I should make an effort this week. When I popped over to see what the theme was this is what I found:
It's a really tricky one this week girls!
Not only is it
but we are also asking you for
SPOTS and STRIPES
If we could use papers it would be easy, right?
We know you'll come up with some fabulous designs and are really looking forward to seeing what appears.
Oh come on Chrissie & Jen - spots AND stripes.......honestly girls! Had a think about it and discarded a few ideas and then went hunting around my stamps to see if I had anything suitable. And I stumbled upon an uninked Stampin Up set called Rain or Shine which I thought would be perfect.
I've used a 6" square white card blank and stamped the umbrellas in Stampin up Real Red, More Mustard and Pacific Point. I then added the handles in the matching colours.........only after I thought why didn't I just stamp the umbrella and handle at the same time!!! At least I managed to get them lined up okay. The sentiment was stamped in SU Pacific point and the raindrops in Tempting Turquoise. I've put drops of Glossy Accents over the raindrops but don't think you can see this in the photo. Now I'm pretty sure I will get a telling off from Chrissie but I just HAD to add these tiny bows - it just needed something.
Thanks for popping over - stay warm and safe.
