It's time for a new challenge at Sparkle & Shine!
We have a fabulous inspiration photo for you! You can create in any way you like as long as we can see the inspiration in your design.
For this challenge we are sponsored by the amazing Create A Smile Stamps! The winner of our challenge will receive a $25 gift card to the online store and will be asked to be our Guest Designer for next month.
I was inspired by the umbrella and dots. I love polka dots, so it was fun creating these umbrellas using a stamp by My Creative Time - I'm Here For You Rain or Shine. I stamped the umbrellas on white card stock first and then stamped them again on different colors of polka dot papers. I fussy cut each one and paper pieced the umbrellas. The background was created using watercolor paper. I stamped the sentiment from the same set in black Versa Fine ink and heat embossed it in clear embossing powder. I added a splash of watercolor to create the blue background. The umbrellas were popped up with dimensionals and a few sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh were added for shine. Wink of Stella was applied to the umbrellas for extra sparkle! I hope you find time to "Dance in the Rain!"
