Another card for the WT challenge today ~ WT605 ~ Umbrellas. I wish I had time to make a card with each of my umbrella stamps, but I made do with inking up this one which I hadn't used yet.
I used green card for the accordion base, and autumnal paper to cut the leafy frame for each one.
For the front, I stamped the umbrella, coloured with Polychromos, masked it and stamped the leaves. Then sponged it a little, and used the die to add a gold metallic border all round.
The middle panel has an appropriate sentiment from Verve, and otherwise is pretty much the same.
For the last panel, I stamped and masked Elliot, then stamped and masked the gate. Sponged in sky and grass, then coloured Elliot with pencils. Maybe it's worth not having an umbrella when it's raining leaves - isn't he cute? I added a die-cut picket fence either side of the gate just so that it wasn't sitting there in the middle of nowhere - although we did indeed see several gates like that in France this summer.

Where do I start ....wow, wow, wow Sabrina this is fabulous. I love the fold and how you decorated all the edges. I am in awe at all your masking especially the picket gate!!! Elliot is super duper cute too. I keep scrolling back and seeing things I missed. Can you tell how much I love this my friend.
Please don't take your organs to heaven - heaven knows we need them here.
