Layers of Color Challenge - Umbrellas





The Layers of Color challenge this week is to use umbrellas in our artwork. I was inspired by these umbrellas from PaperWhimsy and spent a very pleasant afternoon letting my imagination dictate how to use them in these artist trading cards. I love the defiant look on the little gal in the first card. She is not about to twirl her umbrella around while singing in the rain!
