Welcome and happy Wednesday!!!

Have you seen the inspiration picture over at Inspired by All the Little Things ? The pretty pastel umbrellas hanging in a bright showroom make a fantastic scene!
I've made two cards with that inspiration in mind.

For my cards I used alcohol ink dripping technique on glossy cardstock.
The alcohol inks I used are Sailboat Blue,Pool, Aqua, Citrus, Lemonade, Cool Peri.

On my first card I added white doodle lines on the ink drops. The umbrella from Penny Black was silver heat embossed. I then colored the umbrella using blue and yellow alcohol ink. The sentiment from Inkadinkado was stamped in black. I cut the sides of the glossy cardstock panel to immitate the line of the hanging umbrellas, added thin strip of silver glitter cardstock and foam mounted it on the card base on which I adhered a blue panel. 

 For the layout of my second card I took the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch #193. This time I applied the alcohol ink drops more closely and added some dots in clear (using blending solution), blue and silver.
I narrowed down the alcohol ink panel, added thin strips of silver glitter cardstock on both sides and foam mounted it on a white card base. I silver heat embossed the umbrellas on some clear acetate, fussy cut them and adhered them on the alcohol ink panel. I silver heat embossed the sentiment on a piece of clear acetate as well and glued it on some blue cardstock. To finish off I added some rhinestones on the top of umbrellas.

Thank you so much for visiting me today :)!
Have a crafty day!

What clever cards you make TaeEun. I love your blobs of alcohol ink turned into umbrellas and then the silver embossed and coloured umbrella over the top as the focal image with the lovely sentiment right next to it. The second is really pretty too and the acetate umbrellas have been beautifully fussy cut and great to be able to see that gorgeous background through them. x

Two really fabulous cards, TaeEun! I love your silver umbrellas, and how you played with alcohol inks! Fun doodling and I love the clever way you angled the front panel on the first one! Love that you chose clear acetate for the umbrellas on the 2nd card, awesome!

I love how you doodled around some of the drops on the first card, TaeEun, and I want that sentiment. The randomness of the inks on card two are fabulous and the addition of acetate umbrellas sends this card to the top of the class.
