Under my umb-e-rella ella ella...

Hello lovely people,

Are you singing yet?  Sorry if that's stuck in your head now!  I'm back with my second card of the day as it's new release time at All Dressed Up and we have four fantastic images for you this month.  They can all be purchased from the shop.

A Little Me Time

A Time to Share

Looking Gorgeous

We Make a Good Team

As usual I had a hard time deciding which image to use but from my post title I'm sure you have guessed which one I've gone for :-)
I decided on a clean layered design for these little cuties - they just didn't need any embellishment other than a hint of lace and a few pearls.

I paper pieced the umbrella and added a little shading to it with Copics, then coloured the rest of the image with Copics.

Card recipe;
DP: Lost & Found Madison Avenue and Lost & Found 2 Blush - both MME
Sentiment: Clear mini stamp set - Kaisercraft

Copic colours;
Skin: E0000/000/00/11/21
Hair (right hand girl): E35/37/47
Hair (left hand girl): E50/53/43
Blue dress and details: B91/93/95/97
Yellow dress and details: Y21/23 & YR23/24/30/31
Bag: E35/37
Umbrella: R000/RV11
Ground: T0/1/2/3/4

Wow Kat, your blog is just lovely, I have had a good look around and have become a follower.
The title of your Blog Post made me smile.
My Nana of 97 years old died at Christmas and at her Funeral I told a story about her singing the Umbrella ella ella song,so that today made me smile, thank you for that.
Looking forward to seeing more of your lovely cards. Debbiex
