Thinking Of You

The Greetery Rainbow Umbrellas + Video

This past weekend I had an hour long phone conversation with one of my dearest girlfriends. She moved away a few years ago, so my realtime talks with her are truly special. When she first moved, I sent her a card when she settled in. When I hung up the phone, I watched the rain fall outside, and thought about that card. I decided to revisit it, this time making it into a slimline card.

I used the umbrella from Hand In Hand stamp set. I stamped the umbrellas onto Arches Cold Press Watercolor Paper, using Pinkfresh Studio Detail Black Hybrid ink.I used masks to cover the umbrellas I wanted to be in the front before stamping the other umbrellas. Once finished, I pulled out my watercolors, and started painting.

I stuck pretty close to the colors I used on my original cards. I was inspired by the colors from Jean Haines watercolor set, which is made by Daniel Smith. I haven’t purchased the set, since I do have several colors in my own collection. I used Quinacridone Rose, Quinacridone Purple, Amazonite Genuine, Phthalo Turquoise, Cascade Green, Sap Green, Lemon Yellow, and for a neutral, I used Shadow Violet.

Once I finished Painting, I splattered a bit of paint onto the panel, Then trimmed it down to 3.5 x 8.5 inches. I stamped a sentiment from Simple Things stamp set, and attached it to a card base.

I am really glad I revisited this card. It brought back sweet memories of Colleen, and why I love her so much.

  1. Really beautiful Angelica. I love the time right after the rain. Everything is so soft and new. We are having one of those moments this very morning. Looking forward to harvesting some strawberries today. Hugs and TFS

    1. Your garden always sounds so lovely. We can’t do that in the city. I wish I could eat one of your strawberries.
