The cute little bug stamp is from C.C. Designs, called Bitzy Bugs Umbrelli. I stamped it on shimmery white CS and colored with ink from the lids of my stamp pads. I paper pieced the umbrella - (I added dimensionals to the bottom and glued down the top to make it look more realistic.) The little rain drops are from the same stamp company. I used a Sakura stardust pen to add glitter. The puddle was made by masking the boot and stamping a small "shaddow" (by CC Designs too!). Then I drew some splashes with Prismacolor pencils. I used stickles to make it all sparkley.
I made a scalloped edge with my slit punch and used the leftover scraps to make the blue area on the bottom of the card. I thought it mimicked the bottom of the umbrella! I punched some small holes with a teeny tiny hole punch.
The sentiment is by Papertrey Ink (Green Thumb set). I thought it was perfect for the card!
