Sunshine and Showers
Here's my art for The Craft Barn's Calendar Challenge where April's words are BLUE and UMBRELLA(S). My calendar is going to be an A5 flip one so I'm creating on 14cm square card which will be mounted on black A5 card at the end of the year.
I have two stamps with umbrellas/parasols on so thought I'd use them both - the Crafty Individuals' Bathing Beauty from the By the Sea set (CI - 278) and Tim Holtz's Brolly Man. I thought this was appropriate as April can be a bit indecisive in the weather department - sometimes sunny but with those pesky showers. For the background I've used a mix of blue Distress Inks - Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Chipped Sapphire and Faded Jeans and splattered some water on the rainy side!! The bathing beauty is coloured with bright markers and I've added some white paint for the waves crashing on her feet.
So which side do you prefer??
Hope you like and thanks for visiting - you're always welcome!
