TD 08 -- Sketch Challenge

It's the seventh of January, which means that it's time for another Tiffany Doodles challenge. This month, Jenyfur created this awesome sketch:


I decided to use one of Tiffany's newest Valentine digis--Umbrella with Hearts. How could I resist an umbrella? Especially one overflowing with so many little hearts.


The digi fit perfectly in a Labels One Nestabilities die, so I created a square card and loosely followed the sketch. I colored the image with Copics and dyed the seam binding with some Copic ink refills to match.


I used Hero Arts Raindrop Background and ink distressed with Antique Linen distress ink. I sponged inside the Nestie with the same ink before I removed the piece from the die and dotted around the umbrella with a white Signo pigment pen. The sentiment of x's and o's is from Lawn Fawn.
