I don't think I used this umbrella stamp more than once since I've gotten it, which is a shame because it's so pretty. I paper pieced it because I really didn't feel like coloring anything, which seems to be happening more often lately. I don't know if I've just burned out from coloring almost everything, or what, but I just don't feel like doing it much.
In the meantime, I've got plenty of no-coloring-necessary stamps to keep me going. It's better than not making cards at all. I love doing this too much to stop for too long...
BTW, if anyone is wondering about the Aqua felt I used for the flowers, no you didn't miss out on this color from PTI, they haven't come out with Aqua Mist felt yet. I hand dyed a ton of my own wool felt a looong time ago, so I'm well ahead of PTI as far their colors! It's really easy, so if you can't wait, you can dye your own too! I used Wilton cake colors, a pot of boiling water and some natural white wool felt. Simple!
Thanks for visiting, have a great day!
