Pootler's Design Team September, Week 2

Jillian Selwood, Purple Jelly Designs, Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator

Welcome to week 2 of the September Pootler;s Design Team Challenge using the My Hero stamp set.

This week I have chosen to use the umbrella which has the words, 'heard you've been under the weather' and also the sentiment 'hope tomorrow finds you feeling better'

You're my #1 Hero stamp set, umbrella, heard you've been under the weather

I started with a card base of Thick Whisper white, my first mat was in Elegant Eggplant. The second mat was Whisper White, I used this to sponge some sky using Soft Sky ink and the tree builder punch as a cloud. I really love this technique, you can get some amazing backgrounds using it.

I stamped the umbrella on Whisper White using Elegant Eggplant ink and then fussy cut it out. There are coordinating dies for umbrella but I dont't have them, yet. I'm not very good at fussy cutting but this was really easy. I stamped the handle first in versamark and then in Elegant Eggplant and added silver heat embossing powder just to the stem. I wanted to give some definition to the umbrella so decided to cut out the handle and the top bit (not quite sure what that's called!).  I adhered the handle and the top bit straight onto the clouds and put the umbrella on Stampin' Dimensionals. before stamping the second sentiment directly on the card.

Heard you've been under the weather, elegant eggplant

You're my #1 Hero stamp set, Hope tomorrow finds you feeling better

I finished off the card by sponging a few clouds on the inside.

It's week 3 next week and what stamp will I be using? Well you'll have to stop by next week to find out! Or you could subscribe to my newsletter so you don't miss a blog post.

Thank you for stopping by this week and reading my blog, I do hope you’ve enjoyed it. Until next week.
