FCC #137 - Anything Goes

Hello my bloggy friends!
It's time for another Funday Friday Challenge at Jo's Scrap Shack

Today's theme is:


 Our sponsor this week is:

 Sami Stamps

 So make sure to play along this week~
Starts: Friday, May 6th 12:00AM (EST)
Ends: Friday, May 13th  6:00PM (EST)

Today I created with the sweet 'Umbrella Splash' image from the 'Umbrellas and Rain Collection'.  The perfect image to create with today since it's raining outside and what fun it would be to go 'splashing about' in the puddles.  Oh to be a kid again!  LOL!

Anyways ... here's my creation:

The design paper I used for the base of my background is very, very old and probably a 12x12 sheet from one of my DCWV packs left over from my scrapbooking days.

I tried hand cutting 'clouds' but that just wasn't going well so I resorted to my Ala Art 'clouds' stamp and stamped off my cloudy looking sky using Tim Holtz 'Stormy Sky' distress ink.  Die cut a few layers of grass from a scrap of bright green card stock using the Joy Craft grass die and my background was complete.

I've used Spectrum Noir for my coloring medium today and my trust Fiskars swivel craft knife for the fussy cutting.  A few dimensional behind her upper body & umbrella gave a bit more dimension to this fun creation.

I sure do have a lot of old designer paper. You never know when it's going to come in handy. It turned out to be just the thing for your cute umbrella girl with the clouds stamped over it. Adorable!

She sure is having fun splashing in the puddles. The back ground is great on this card. Cute umbrella girl. Thanks for joining us at the Mod Squad Challenge this week. Good luck!
