A Sugar Shower!!


I've been itching to play with this new Shower Time stamp set from My Favorite Things and I wanted it to be a 'dirty shower' to go with my challenge this week...(hmmm...that doesn't sound too good.....heehee), so I figured the new Hey Sugar designer papers by Cosmo Cricket would be a perfect match!! I just got my package from Lindsey so they were conveniently located right on top of my 'pile of new things to play with'!!

I knew right away, when I got Shower Time that I wanted to paper piece the umbrella and these luscious designs from the Hey Sugar line are just right!! So I stamped the umbrella girl image on watercolour paper in Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink and coloured her body in using my Prismacolor pencils and OMS, although her top would have paper pieced well too!! Then I stamped the umbrella on the patterned paper and cut it out....easy peasy!

The layout that I used was Julee's Mojo sketch from last week and it gave me a chance to use a few of the different coordinating patterns and also the scalloped piece is actually a die cut from the Hey Sugar pack. I punched out the main image using my Mega Circle punch and dirtied her up with a cosmetic sponge and ink. Then I cut a larger circle using my CM cutting system and then distressed that layer. I placed both pieces on top of the flowery die cut and then sponged it's edges as well. The light turquoise layer I stamped on with Soft Sky ink using one of the little flowers and the small heart from the Shower Time set and then dirtied that layer too. The card base is More Mustard with a layer of Bravo Burgundy. I added the hardware from We R Memorykeepers, some Prima flowers and then stamped the friendship sentiment which is from the Boho Blossoms stamp set. Love the font in that set!

These stamp sets, along with all the other My Favorite Things stamps, can be purchased directly from the site or if you live in Canada and don't want to pay the duty, brokerage fees etc., the lovely Nancy at Stamp Art would be only too happy to help you get some!! And they are of course, clear stamps, so no bulky packaging for shipping!!!

Don't forget to 'get dirty' too, and join in this week's challenge!! Have a stampin' good day!!!

This is gorgeous. I wondered how you got those great big scallops. How awesome would that be if it was a die or punch?
