Under the Weather? - Get Well Soon

I dug out an old Tatty Button stamp that hadn't seen the light of day for quite some time and inked her up, colouring her with Promarkers, adding Glossy Accents to the puddles and creating and raindrop background of Star Dust Stickles.  I actually stamped her twice, the oval was die cut, leaving a partial image, all I coloured of that was the puddles and ground.  I then stamped the image again, coloured the girl, cut her out and decoupaged her onto the oval base using foam pads, so that the umbrella stands proud above the top of the oval.
 The papers are Papermania, Gorjuss, from the latest goody bag, the colours in this pack are really lovely, some bright, some dark and some soft and muted.
To embellish, I added some layered ribbon with a matching bow, made on my Embellishment Attic bow maker, a sentiment stamped with a stamp from a Personal Impressions set, a trio of lilac gems, and I finished with some flowers made with a Spellbinders die and a Woodware punch, using silver micro beads for their centres.
