It's one of my favorite times of the month, a day dedicated to bringing a previously released stamp set back to the forefront with renewed inspiration! This month we are actually focusing on pair of sets: Scattered Showers & Scattered Showers Additions by Dawn McVey.
Scattered Showers provides everything you need to create a beautiful array of stylish umbrellas. They can be made to look masculine or feminine, modern or vintage...it's all about the colors you choose and what you pair them with!
To complement the original set, Dawn also created Scattered Showers Additions which has all kinds of wonderful images to use in conjunction with the original umbrellas. And even more appropriate sentiments!
I wanted to create a background that resembled large-scale raindrops and thought these shapes from Modern Basics would do just the trick. I used Hawaiian Shores, Aqua Mist, Simply Chartreuse & Ripe Avocado to stamp my own custom pattern.
I didn't use the traditional handle included in Scattered Showers to use with the umbrella top, I instead bent one of the long sentiments from Around & About Sentiments. The little flower is from Scattered Showers Additions.
I adhered a strip of Simply Chartreuse cardstock to the side of the card that was stamped with a few butterflies from Butterfly Dreams in VersaMark ink. The sentiment was layered across the bottom of the card using True Black ink.
