April Showers Bring...

... May flowers. That is, unless you live in Seattle where it tends to bring umbrellas more often than flowers! Learn how to make this mixed media card that adds texture with Creative Medium.


Directions:


Start by laying the stencil over a piece of white cardstock and adhering the edges with tape to keep the stencil from moving. Using InkBlushers, alternately add Memento Luxe Gray Flannel and VersaColor Imperial Blue inks, blending the edges together.

Using the single umbrella stencil and a palette knife, smooth Metallic Silver Creative Medium over the stencil with the Palette Knife.

Quickly and carefully remove the stencil and let dry completely.

Stamp the sentiment on vellum with Danube Blue and emboss with clear powder. Trim edges and adhere to umbrellas by wrapping the edges to the back.

Trim the edges and layer the on blue card to finish.
