I scribbled a Speed Ball Elegant Writer onto a palette to watercolor the cloud background. The diluted ink breaks up into some interesting colors as it dries. I used Distress Inks for the sky (Stormy Sky and Peacock). I spattered some acrylic paint for texture. The whole background is spritzed with a fine clear glitter. Swarovski crystals and glitter drops add even more shine. I backed the petite umbrellas with an adhesive before die cutting which saves me so much time. The 'brellas are popped up on dimensionals.
