Flower umbrella


This is one of my favourite PB stamps which I have used many times but this is the first time I have paper pieced the flower. I thought the image perfect for April showers and used one of my new dies too, the lovely flowers. I added tiny pearls under the rain clouds to create a rainy scene.
Image - Penny Black
Medium - Copics
Papers - MME Portobello Road, DCWV guaze
Dies - MB clouds, Joy flowers, Sizzix doily
Lace - Crafty Ribbons
