I also spotted that my Crafty Little Blog has just passed 100,000 page views, so thank you for that. It's nice to know that I'm not talking to myself.
Thanks also for the interest on my Pinterest. After my marathon pinning sessions I now have all of the cards from my blog on there. So glad I won't have to do that again!
I've picked this card to come back with as the weather is so grey and miserable that I thought we could all do with some sunshine.
Last month when Mum and Dad were staying Mum and I watched this......
.....YouTube Tuesday video of Barbara Gray's and were inspired to have a go. I chose to use the Double Bubble stencil and we ended up with a fab print. I didn't know what to do with it though..........until the Umbrella Girls stencil arrived. I thought they would be fun together and a bit different, although I did feel bit naughty sending a sample to Barbara that used her own idea! lol
The original print was done with the 7 x 7 inch stencil but I wanted to use it for the background too, so I got out my 9 x 11 inch version and did another larger print with that.
I used the same colours as Barbara did - Mustard Seed, Broken China and Worn Lipstick Distress Ink. The stencilling of the Umbrella Girl is done with black Stazon ink on a sponge and the stamping is done with black Archival.
The small umbrellas are from the Remountable Clarity Characters set. They go so well with this month's umbrella stamps and stencils.
"Sending You Sunshine" finishes it off.
The next day - Oops, I've just noticed that the video doesn't seem to be there when I look at this post on my iPad (there's just a gap) but it is on my iMac (which I wrote it on). I must have done something wrong. Anyway if you can just see a space click on it and it should take to to the video. I hope!
