Who's Afraid of the Big Bold Brights . . .

Not me!!! I made this card for Sketch Challenge 220. I used Beate's tutorial on making texture with alcohol markers which is now available on SCS to create the dotted texture on the umbrella. I loved this set the moment I saw it. It was one of the sets that made me want to be on the design team for Hanna Stamps . . . and about a month ago I discovered that I did not own it yet. EEK! So I decided I needed to have it and promptly ordered it. Then I got busy doing other stuff and had yet to pull it out . . . well, today I managed to play with it finally. Hope you like what I came up with for this sketch!

Stamps: Rainy Day (Hanna Stamps), Miss You (Amuse Artstamps) Paper: Yo Yo Yellow (SU), Baby Blue Dark (Prism Papers), Solar White Classic Crest (Neenah), Flowers - PL-172 (Me & My Big Ideas) Ink: Onyx Black Versafine Accessories: Clear embossing powder (SU!), copic ciao markers (Imagination International Inc.), blue grosgrain with white dots (Dots Dashes & Checks - Michaels Stores Inc.), Sewing machine, white thread, silver prismacolor pencil, Glossy Accents (Ranger)

Cute card. I tend to stay away from brights, but always enjoy when others use them.

I don't know what is worse, thinking you have a stamp, but don't OR not thinking you have it and order it again, LOL
