Mixed Media Day: Orange Team 14-16

Orange Team 14-16 Challenge
April Showers
April is more than half over, and we can't get to
the May flowers without the April showers, so that's
this week's challenge - April Showers.
The Design Team has made some great projects using
the Pink Paisley Hello Sunshine stamp set and Paper Collection
which are both available in the

Happy Saturday, Cuttin' and Stampin' friends! Karen N here from Craftily Yours. So excited to be sharing my mixed media project made with this fabulous stamp-set and this GORGEOUS paper. Seriously, it's lovely; go get it! :)

I used the umbrella die that comes with the stamp-set to cut an umbrella and then created a fun rainy day background with my new Tim Holtz Spritzer (that I purchased at a GREAT deal from Cuttin' and Stampin'. It not only works with the watercolor markers but also with Copics. I spritzed blue and grey Copics through the Stripes Tim Holtz layered stencil and then added a lighter blue and some pink to fill in.

Since rainy days make me happy, I knew it needed some glimmer, so I misted the whole background with Glimmer Mist in Frost. The clouds and the umbrella are outlined with a little Tim Holtz Black Soot distress ink too.

Go HERE to enter your project.

Craftily yours,
