By Lori Designs BLDC14 - Ella's Umbrella

I saw Lori's latest Lollipop release and my heart started beating faster and I'll be using a few of them in the near future. Check these out;

And Lori's also released some new Puddle Jumpers as well;

Shelby, Quinn & Daisy Bundle

Today is challenge day at the By Lori Designs challenge blog (BLDC14) and today we have a lovely soft spring Easter colour combination.

I opted to use Ella's Umbrella again this week - it's so sweet!!! I just love the polka dotted umbrella and Ella's sweet little froggie friend.

I love this older paper Porcelain by Basic Grey - the colours are perfect for this colour challenge. For my card I used the simpler option Midnight Madness sketch #100 and I love how it turned out.

I covered Ella's boots and umbrella with glossy accents for a wet, rubber look and it looks fantastic! I applied stardust stickles to the background, giving the rain shower a little sparkle.

My embellishments are all handmade. I love 3D paper flowers and I don't think I take time often enough to make them!! I have punches for flowers and dies for flowers, and they don't get used often enough, but I've started keeping them a little closer to hand, so in theory, that will trigger my flower making more often.

I used copics to colour this image;

umbrella, dress, boots; Y0000, Y00, Y11, Y13, R000, R01, R20, R21, T4, T6
water, frog; B41, B45, G40, G82
hair; E55, E57, E59
skin; E000, E01, E11, R12
background; B0000, B00, B01

stamps; ella's umbrella (by lori designs)
paper porcelain (basic grey), canvas white, leapfrog (bazzill), x-press it (copic)
accessories; fair isle pendant, sm rectangle, square eyelet nestabilities (spellbinders), flora/fauna punches (ek success), scallop border punch (SU!), island blossom dew drops (the robin's nest), glossy accents, stardust stickles (ranger)
