April Challenge Reminder

Have you found some time to make an
 April Showers Bring May Flowers Themed Project 
and enter it in the Great Impressions April Challenge?

The lucky winner will be receiving this adorable stamp:

Here's the card I made using the Great Impressions 


Just because a stamp is a border stamp, doesn't mean you can't use it for other purposes.  Here I used the stamp as the flower border at the bottom of the card  (heat embossed in gold, watercolored and fussy cut) and also as the umbrella pattern (stamped twice, watercolored, and heat embossed with clear embossing powder to give it a shiny vinyl look).

I started out making a yellow umbrella, then a pink umbrella, then a pale blue umbrella, and finally decided on the blue umbrella above. 
What do you think?  Did I choose correctly? Would anyone like a leftover umbrella?

Here's a tip to prevent your adhesive from showing when working with velum.  
First, attach any items that will be on top of the velum.  
Turn it over and place your adhesive on the velum behind those items.  When you glue the velum down whatever adhesive you used will be hidden.

We look forward to seeing your projects for the 
You have until the end of the month to enter.
