IHP - Under My Umbrella

I saw the Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoaststampers today and decided to check out the Wild Wings website for a little inspiration. I found this Spring Garden painting and it reminded me of the Under My Umbrella Stampavie stamp I just got from Kate at i {heart} papers.

I used my Hattie by Stella and Rose paper pad for the colour palette. It makes me think of spring rain showers and spring skies washed clean of winter since there is little nastier than dirty snow in spring and seeing the crud that has built up over winter. *blech* Spring is the snowiest time of year for my area, and I'm normally ready for it, but we had a lot of snow this past winter and the temperature was cold for most of the winter months so having more snow right now is firmly standing on my very last raw nerve! 

I used the new Parisian Accents border die which I really love! I love the whole set, and you'll see plenty more of it in the near future. My layout is from this week's mojo monday sketch challenge

These Petaloo flowers got a little spring shower sprtiz of sea glass glimmer mist. I'm new to glimmer mist (*gasp* - I know!! What cave have I been habitating?!!) before adhering them and I do like the subtle sparkle they have. I started colouring this sweet girlie while I was away from home and I just had my prisma color pencils with me. I like the grainy texture it gives the umbrella and the girl's pants. The rest of the image was coloured with copic markers.
