Crafts 4 Eternity - Weather

Hi friends - happy Friday!! Sorry I'm a bit late posting this...anyone ever 'struggle' with creating? Man, talk about frustrating - I have two projects on my desk and BOTH have me super frustrated...this is one of them. HA! More on that in a moment...

This week at Crafts 4 Eternity, we want to see your project with a theme or element related to weather! One lucky participant will win a $12 voucher to Di's Digi Designs. Also, be sure to stop by the blog to see if you were a winner from last week!

OK, so on to my little project...my tag is completely CASE(d) from Kay Miller; her work rocks! But let me tell you - I think I watercolored 4 umbrellas - seriously...you should peek in my trash can.

Smiley from Millan.Net

UGH...learned a lot but that was rather painful! Just like Kay, I kept it super simple and layered the colorful tag on a white top folding card with some embossed score lines towards the bottom. A truly CAS card that was anything but easy - HA HA!!

The umbrella was die cut twice and layered with some craft foam. I LOVE those white lines, I used The Crafters Workshop Mini Mod Spirals stencil and traced some of the lines with a white gel pen. Super simple but gives it such a cool look IMHO.

You can see the embossed lines from this angle. :D

Love that funky design using the Mini Mod Spirals stencil

Thanks for popping in; hope you have a GREAT weekend!
