Whatever the Weather



 Hello Monday, my friends! And welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Thank you for joining us for the  Emboss It Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

Please join me in welcoming our guest designer for April, Estelle Palumb aka Atouscrapo! I know you will love her creative takes on this month's challenges. Welcome Estelle!

At the beginning of each month, we showcase a company, and this month it's our very own Simon Says Stamp! Be sure to check out all the Simon  Says Stamp branded products - there is an amazing array, from stamps to inks to tools and everything in-between! If you have Simon Says Stamp products, we would love to see them in your makes this week.

This week the challenge is: WHATEVER THE WEATHER

Umbrellas are not just for rain! 

I began by stamping the umbrella image multiple times on each color of Simon's glitter paper. I stamped it on the back, forgetting that I would have to match each piece up on the opposite side. But, it worked out! I also stamped her skirt in this beautiful buttery yellow from the Rainbow Splash collection. 


Next, I collaged some Tim Holtz Palette and Terminology papers onto the art journal,. Then I blended yellow and green inks over each area.  

I drew around the umbrella and added a gold dot (from some lettering I had in my stash). I cut out two circles for the sun and doodled a bit around that.

Since it's right around Easter time, I just had to add two adorable rabbits hopping along behind her. 

And, didn't you know that rabbit ears work very well to hold you umbrella? 

Final touch...I hand  lettered  "Umbrellas are not just for rain"

This trio is prepared for just about any weather coming there way. Maybe not the two feet of snow we just had the day before Palm Sunday, here in upstate New York...they'll have to bundle up a bit more for that kind of weather!
