& 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.
