Prepared for Rain


After all that lovely weather I am prepared for the rain with wellies and umbrella! I paper pieced the Little Claire dinkie stamp with oddments, main papers are MME. The clouds and umbrella were made with MB dies. The gauze paper I used for the clouds is DCWV.  I added glossy accents to the umbrella top and under the wellies. I found the cute little umbrella punch in a shop in the Cotswolds when we were there rectnly and used it to punch ut a border. The beauty of using a punch on symmetrical paper is that you can get the pattern even. Finished off with DI Weathered Wood around the die cut image and some turquoise pearl pen dots.
