Umbrella Lula



Hi everyone.  Time has just flown by this afternoon and it's now after 5:30pm here and I haven't figured out what we're doing for dinner ... I think it will be ordering in tonight :)  Sometimes crafts have to take priority.  Thankfully, it doesn't happen too often that I completely loose track of time so I'm sure hubby will be happy to head out and pick us up something good for tonight's dinner.

I wanted to make sure I got this posted today ... it's for the latest challenge at All That Scraps - Anything Goes ... and the challenge closes tomorrow.  I've had Umbrella Lula for a while, but never inked her yet.  I couldn't resist using my latest favorite patterned paper to give her a "fancy" umbrella.  Hope you like.



Stamps:  Umbrella Lula (C.C. Designs); sentiment (computer generated)
Paper:  White, Summer Starfruit, Bashful Blue, Sycamore Street DP (SU!)
Ink:  Basic black (SU!); Copics:  E000, E00, E01, YR07, R17, BG72, Y21, Y32, E44, E49, E77
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Curly-Q Border (C.C. Designs), Crystal Effects, glue dots, glue, white gel pen



Lula is paper pieced with her face, hair and duck all colored with copics.  I stamped off a second duck, and popped him up to make him stand out.  I die-cut the Curly-Q Border from Bashful Blue cardstock and used the "centers" as the raindrops.  I coated them with Crystal Effects to give them shine and dimension.

The sentiment is computer generated.  I know it might seem a little strange ... "Let me be your umbrella", but it makes sense when you see the inside, which reads "I'm here for you."  I thought it would make for a good card to give a friend that is going through a tough time.


Here's a close-up of Umbrella Lula:
