April Showers Bring May Flowers

It is time for another inspirational post for 2 Creative Chicks.  This is what I have for you.

I started with a dark turquoise card base cut and folded to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card. Next I added a black mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4" and then the patterned paper cut at 3 3/4" X 5".  The umbrella patterned paper is from an Echo Park.

I stamped the umbrella onto watercolor paper and colored it with Spectrum Noir Aqua Pencils.  I scanned the image into my Brother Cut and Scan and had it fussy cut the image for me.  I then ran some black and turquoise paper through my big shot and used the stitched square dies from Memory Box to cut a shadow and a base mat for the umbrella.

Next I cut the flowers out using my Cricut Explore machine and using the stitched rectangle dies from Memory Box to cut a mat and shadow for my flowers.  Finally I stamped by sentiment using a stamp set from my Creative Time. The sentiment reads: April showers bring May flowers.

I hope you will join the challenge this month and let us see what you make.
