Simon Says Stamp May 2016 Card Kit

I'm finally posting a card that wasn't created using Lawn Fawn stamps exclusively!  I subscribe to the SSS card kit, and I love receiving my box of goodies each month. I almost never pass on a kit.  I'm not always so good about using my kits to make more than a few cards, but I aim to get better at that.  

I stamped the sun and clouds using selective inking to delete the smiley faces, then masked to blend the sky using Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress Inks.  I paper pieced the umbrella using one of the adorable plaid papers by Lawn Fawn that are included in the kit.  I needed the umbrella to protect something, so reached for the cute little bird from Lawn Fawn's Year Four stamp set.  The sentiment is from the Pink Fresh stickers from the kit, and I used the grassy border die (Lawn Fawn).  Hard to see, but I added Glossy Accents to the raindrops.  The sun was colored with Zig Clean Color markers, and I used Copics on the clouds (the clouds are covering up the catastrophe created when I attempted to use the gray Clean Color marker!).  I'm happy with the way my card turned out, but there were some redos along the way!!

Thanks for visiting my blog!
