Paper Makeup Stamps called Emma. I LOVE the rain, so I was immediately drawn to sweet Emma. :)
After coloring the umbrella, I added the polka dots with a Sharpie White Poster Paint pen to coordinate with the paper ruffle. I sponged around the image first with Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and then with Antique Linen to dull it down a bit to better coordinate with the blue tones in the paper.
For the ruffle, after punching a paper strip with a scallop punch I spritzed it with water, which made the paper more pliable, and then fan folded it, opened it back up, pressed down one edge with a ruler and let it dry before adhering and sewing. I learned this technique from my friend Julie Johnson.
The pearls are by Hero Arts and the roses are by Prima.
