Laura has chosen Umbrellas as this week’s challenge at Layers of Colour and there’s even a tutorial (which I happily referred to), showing you how to make a 3D umbrella embellie! So here’s my entry – a whimsical card…

I used a cocktail stick and a bead for the handle of the umbrella, adhered with silicone glue to the card beneath the ‘umbrella’. I also found a dictionary page with the definition of umbrella to use for my main background! This was fun Laura, thank you!

A big thank you also for the beautiful stamps too – that strawberry border is stamped with one of the 3 Laura sent me. You think that’s good, look at the envelope it arrived in – my first piece of Mail Art! Isn’t it glorious? DH and DD were also most impressed!!

I have just blanked out the full adresses to be on the safe side (in Photoshop!).

  1. Outstanding, Rosie! I love how you pulled the colors from her scarf, added the dictionary pages and enhanced your wonderful 3-D umbrella! And thank you, Honey for the praises, you honor me!
    Hugs, Laura

  3. How cool is the mail art, not that what you made is not cool. The piece turned out very nice, including the dinky red umbrella.
