Hi everyone and welcome to a new challenge on the Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge Blog. Our exclusive sponsor for this
month is Lemon Shortbread Digi Stamps and Pages with their unique and beautiful collection of digi stamps. For my card today,
I created a monochromatic with one colored element card featuring Rainy Days Girl with Umbrella.
I was very inspired to create this card based on a painting I saw somewhere in my early teen life. I tried to search for the original
painting and find the painter’s name but all I found was Parisian images in black and white with red umbrella paintings.
To start this card, I printed the digital image at 4 ¼ by 5 ½ onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb. cardstock. I colored the
image in warm grays with a bold and bright red umbrella.
Copic Color Combination
Skin: W4, W3, W1, W0
Hair: W9, W7, W5, W3
Coat: W9, W7, W5, W3
Undercoat: W2, W1
Boots: W9, W7, W5, W3
Umbrella: R29, R27, R24, R22, R21
Background: W1, W0
Puddles: W5, W3, W1, W0
For the background, I die cut the panel with an A2 sized stitched rectangle die and finished coloring in the background by adding
dots across the background to create some texture.
To finish this card, I stamped out the sentiment with Versamark ink and white heat embossed it onto a piece of black cardstock.
I trimmed the sentiment strip and adhered it using foam tape to the bottom left corner.
