Under The Weather

Hi to all and a very happy Wednesday to you!

I decided to go out of my color comfort zone with today’s get well card.  For me being a subtle/earth tone kind of gal….you may need your sunglasses.  Just kidding!

         002

The image is from the set ‘Ain’t Love Grand’ and the DSP is from the Brights Collection.

I masked the ‘get well’ the first time stamping the image.  Stamped the image again without the masking, punched the sentiment out using a circle punch and placed it where I wanted.

A scalloped shaped ring was made which enabled me to place it just behind the partially cut out umbrella.

By stamping the image two more times onto the designer papers I could obtain the patterned pieces for the umbrella design.  Although it’s not real noticeable, each piece of the umbrella is slightly popped up with glue dots.

So all in all I think I did okay with the bright colors, hopefully it will brighten someone’s day.  *smiles*

You certainly brighten mine with your visits!  I’d like to thank everybody for them, I appreciate each and every one!!

I could use a little brightening these days and am so glad I visited your blog. Thanks for sharing such a cheery card. I love the way you did the umbrella-how it kind of hangs off the circle. Did you punch it first, then add the designer paper or was there some kind of fussy cutting going on behind the scenes here??

Anyway, thanks for brightening my morning.
