Puddles and Rainbows



Hi again!  Today I have two posts, so if you’re looking for Power Poppy just scroll down.  

With this fun card I hope to bring cheer to your rainy day!  It’s a fun image from A Day for Daisies called New Umbrella, that we’re showcasing from the It’s a New Day Collection.  And we’re ushering in a new challenge for the next 2 weeks - to Use Paper-Piecing!  

It was great fun to give this umbrella and the raincoat and boots some fun paper pieced pattern.  

I always begin by colouring first (Copics), and then adding the paper piecing overtop.  

The cute clouds are from The Cat’s Pajams and I added some pretty scallops along the bottom with a Spellbinders Die.  


The sentiment is from Power Poppy’s Poppy set and I thought it was perfect for the design, and the pretty papers are older ones I had in my stash MME - Oxford Lane.  

Pop by and see what the ADFD gang has in store for you today, then join us in the Paper Piecing challenge...

What a sweet image, beautifully colored too, blue and yellow look wonderful together. I love the paper pieced umbrella using the same paper from your panels.
Thank you for sharing.
