I needed a card for a neighbor who needs encouragement and was inspired to make this card by the challenge at Layers of Color. The theme was "umbrellas." I immediately thought of this very old stamp I have by All Night Media. I don't use it often, but I really love it. I followed Laura's instructions on the challenge blog on how to make an umbrella. I used a Studio G stamp to create the stripes on mine. The rest of the image was colored in using watercolor pencils and blender pen.
