The Paper Players #97 & Just Add Ink #120 - A Sketch & an Inspiration Image

I didn't want to miss out on the great sketch by LeAnne at the Paper Players this week, so I have squeezed in a card, combining the sketch with the inspiration challenge from Just Add Ink.  Here is the resulting card:-

& here are the challenge inspirations (click on each graphic to go directly to the respective challenges):-

I've taken the white panelling & the colours from the box shelving to create my card (which was also inspired by Nikki's awesome gumboot card!)

The umbrella was made from a circle die-cut, which had the edge cut with the frilly scallop from the edgelit dies.  I made the handle using a standard hole punch for the inner curve, the oval punch for the outer curve & I just trimmed the sides so they were straight, rounding the ends.  This has been added to a metallic silver rod.  I added the frame/rib lines to the umbrella using my scoring stylus, a mouse mat & the edge of both a round & oval metal die.  It has also been sponged & shaded with a blender pen & ink.  The flowers were made from the boho blossom punch & the itty bitty flower punch.

I had lots of fun making this one & was rapt with how it turned out.

ETA:  A big thank you to LeAnne for picking my card as one of her "Cut Above" choices this week:-
