Umbrella Trio, PP333

Hi friends! Today at The Paper Players, the sweet and talented LeAnne is our hostess, and she has an awesome sketch for us to play along with. I had so many ideas for those three elements: balloons, flowers, teacups, feathers, the options are limitless! The team came up with some really fun ideas, too! 

I finally settled on umbrellas, using a stamp set from Clearly Besotted that hasn't seen too much love yet. I also used a brand new, juicy red ink pad from Simon Says Stamp, and I have to say I was really impressed at the great coverage with just one inking. Those solid images can sometimes be challenging. However, before I used it I dropped it ink side down on my beige carpet. Aughhh! Thankfully the damage wasn't too bad and by moving quickly I was able to get it all out. Phew! 

I'm also playing along with the Wednesday Challenge at Simon Says Stamp which is Anything Goes.

Products Used:
Stamp Sets: April Showers, April Shower Additions (Clearly Besotted)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Tumbled Glass Distress Ink (Tim Holtz), Lipstick Red (Simon Says Stamp)
Markers: Tuxedo Black Dual Marker (Memento)
Tools: Big Shot, Stitched Rectangle Dies (Simon Says Stamp), April Showers Dies (Clearly Besotted)
Accessories: Moonshine Sequins (Simon Says Stamp)

Thanks so much for stopping by! Please visit the rest of our Design Team at The Paper Players, and we hope you'll play along with our challenge this week, too!
