Don't Be Blue


I've been pondering The Card Concept's umbrella challenge since it was first posted and finally came up with an idea for it with a little help from the Colour Me…! colours.  Originally I had a solid umbrella paper pieced with shades of blue but I kept looking at the negatives of the umbrella die cuts and thinking there had to be a way to use them.  After some delicate cutting and some playing around I came up with this! Kind of funky and fun.  And as for category - somewhere between CAS and CAG I think!


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Tempting Turquoise, Pacific Point) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Sentiment from Die-Namics Umbrella & Stamp Set) My Favourite Things
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Dies:  (Die-Namics Umbrella & Stamp Set) My Favourite Things
Gem:  Recollections

Definitely funky and fun! You've made me realize... I don't think I have an umbrella stamp/die/paper. That must be wrong. ;) The colours are perfect for this great design.
