Inspired By All The Little Things Challenge #27

Hi there, blog friends ~
I have the distinct honor of being the Guest Designer at the Inspired By All The Little Things Challenge Blog, and I am so excited! My super sweet and incredibly talented blog friend Karren Johnson asked me to be her guest, and here is the inspiration photo:


How about all those fabulous umbrellas! I have a few umbrella stamps and dies to choose from, so my head was spinning with ideas ~
Here is my card:



I combined stamps and dies from a few different sets, and started by using distress inks in the same colors for the umbrellas, and splattered them with water. I kept all of the critters light gray so it wouldn't distract from the colors on the umbrellas and sentiment. I blended Sea Glass ink on the background, and angled the cloud die, then added clear sparkle to the sentiment for fun...here's a close-up: 



I hope you'll stop by the Inspired By All The Little Things Blog to see what their fabulous Design Team has created, and to see how I answered some questions posed to me :)
With special thanks to Karren and the Team for inviting me along to be their Guest Designer for this challenge!

Have a great weekend,
