Change it Up.

I had so much fun with "Rain or Shine" from MFT the other day, that I just had to give it another go. This time, I broke out my Bali Breeze Designer paper from Stampin Up. All the colors here are so rich and vibrant. QUITE a different look from the subtle, quiet card I'd made the other day. I couldn't wait to get started!

The dress, skirt, boots and doggie sweater were all paper pierced. I watercolored the girls skin on her legs and hand, as well as the puddle and the dog's fur. The umbrella was stamped in Versamark then embossed with clear embossing powder. The slit punch made quick work of a scalloped border for the fun teal patterned paper.

The sentiment is inked up a little at a time for perfect placement within a 1 1/4 circle, then I layered that with a 1 3/8 taken with teal circle and a scalloped circle in old olive.

Lots of layers of dimensionals as the scalloped border is bumped up one level, then the main image panel is bumped up on two sets, and the umbrella had to be bumped up on three stacked sets of dimensionals. My husband loathes dimensionals, as those little white hexagons get static clung to me and then travel all around my house. I always hear him yell "Aaargh! HEXAGON!" It only makes me laugh, but I don't think he thinks it funny. You should have heard him groaning as he watched me apply layer after layer of those babies on this card!
