UmbrellasPosted: May 27, 2016
I love pretty umbrellas and umbrella motifs in general so when I created this card I wanted to give them all bright colours. I did some masking to get all my umbrellas in amongst each other then watercoloured each one a different colour. I painted the sky first wet into wet then splattered some blue stain over it when it was almost dry but not quite. The umbrella scene is framed in white from the initial taping with masking tape then matted in black and attached to a natural card base.
At present I only have a black umbrella but there are such lovely coloured ones as well as the cute ones with paintings and the like on them; I think it is time for a new one. Ideally I’d choose a red raincoat(with polka-dot lining), red boots and a red and white polka-dot umbrella. In actual fact I don’t have any of those things!
