Flower Cheer with her Parasol

Happy Day Digi Bell Fans :D
This is my first post as a Digi Bell GDT!!
I adore any of EB talent!!! Thanks Elisabeth!!

My card has 2 images~~both by Elisabeth Bell!!  
Parasol is a supreme special that she has in her digital design collection HERE.
Flower Cheer is an EB for SCACD exclusive stamp from the Winter Sampler Kit 
I just love how these images compliment each other :)
Aren't these SWEET :D
Colored both images with Copics and spica pens.  Diamond glaze on the umbrella gives it the rainproof look!!  Gold ATYou spica for handle and detailed with pearls.  Finished with dangling heart charm.
The speckled background paper is homemade by Mwah~~LOL
Used the wax paper resist technique for the first time--wasn't really sure how it was suppose to turn out so I then continued by taking my TH stormy sky ink pad and stamped it directly over paper~~kinda cool how it left the square pad marks~~total mistake I thought at first and....the more I looked at it .....the more I liked it--Hee hee.  I then sponged TH mustard seed litely over the top 2/3 for brightness!!!  WHOA what a wonderful result in my eyes~~How about you?????  TELL ME PLEASE!!!
