Here's a fun challenge from Flourishes, Get Sketchy. And here's the sketch we had to use as our inspiration:
And here's my card:
The embossed background was made using a Spellbinders Impressabilities die and after embossing, rubbing Tim Holtz Spun Sugar and Antique Linen directly over the paper. See GinaK's technique video.
The front pink layer (pink Bazzil cardstock) was layer on top of patterned paper from a Prima paperpack, "Reflections".
The focal image and sentiment are both from GinaK's Enjoy the Sunshine set. The umbrella was first stamped in black on white cardstock and the re-stamped on patterned paper. The 'crown' of the umbrella was cut out and paper-pieced on the line image. The rest of the umbrella was colored using Memento Markers (Lulu Lavendar, Rose Bud, Canteloupe). This was cut out using a Spellbinders Petite Oval and layer on Scalloped Petite Oval in the same pink Bazzil cardstock. This was layered on top of brown Bazzil cardstock (same as back layer). This focal image section was popped up with 1/16" 3D dots.
The pink edging was covered with Sakura Glaze Pen - see close-up below:
