Rain and rainbow

The Craft Barn challenge for April involves the colour Blue and the word Umbrella. I had to cogitate hard for this one as I have no stamps on a rain theme on account that I don't like rain!
Rainbows, the theme at WOW Embossing powders, on the other hand... love them, they have mesmerizing colours and they signal the end of the rain.

Combining those themes into one led to this...

The rain is a Fiskars texture plate (remember those?). The rainbow has been coloured with pencils and I added a smidgen of Distress ink in the sky. My umbrella has been triple embossed in clear powder.

Thanks for coming by,
