Amber Ink - Lovin' The Rain

Hey Y'all!  I'm here with another Amber Ink creation using the so sweet Amber Girls line - Rainy Day in particular.  Isn't she beautiful?  I paper pieced her coat with the Seahorse Paisley iPaper.  {swoon}  I colored the rest of my image with Copics and then coated her boots and umbrella with Glossy Accents.  I then let it dry overnight.  I LOVEEEEEEE how her patent leather boots look and her umbrella is see through!  I have this exact umbrella.  It's a huge, dome umbrella that is totally clear.  It's fabulous! 

Anyway - after it was dry I used a Sizzix die that I have to cut her out.  I added a sentiment of simply "just saying hi".  I hand trimmed a mat around the back of my main panel and then layered it onto green and white check DP.  The check paper is stitched to the ivory stock below it with a white top thread and red lower thread.  I love how the red lower thread pops through just showing a peek of red.  I used a large teal ribbon tied simply in to a bow.  As a final touch I added green self adhesive pearls scattered about. 

I hope you come oogle the gorgeous creations and images over at Amber Ink!

Have a great weekend!  I hope you have been inspired to create!
