This weeks challenge letter is U and there's not a lot of words to choose from! So my word is probably rather predictable - umbrella. I've cheated a bit in my quest to use stamps in my collection that has never seen ink. My new stamp, this time, is one that only joined my collection at the recent Craft Barn Extravaganza and not one that has been forgotten and unloved. It's a PaperArtsy tiny script stamp from their mini series and I think it's going to make an appearance on lots of my backgrounds. I applied Distress Ink to my base card and then misted with water which produced a lovely mottled effect. Dots were made with Fresco paint through a stencil. The umbrella man die-cut was sponged with Black Soot Distress Ink and I covered his umbrella with a piece of scrapbook paper and added raindrops using Glossy Accents.
