Katzelkraft - I like people who smile when...

Hi everyone!
I am back with a new Katzelkraft creation.
Today also marks the start of a new challenge at DotMCC, so I've combined both into one post! 
This month we are celebrating

National Umbrella Day

That's where the umbrella from Katzelkraft fits right in!

I started by making masks of the umbrella and bird and arranging them on the card. This helps me see where the images fit best. I then inked the umbrella stamp with pink and black and stamped the image on the card. Stamped the bird and the circles as well. Masked the umbrella, stamped the raindrops and colored them with aqua markers.
Next, I scribbled on an acetate sheet with a yellow aqua marker and sprayed it and the card with water. 
I blotted this slightly thinned color in some areas of the card and repeated the process a second time. 
While the card was drying, I stamped the bird on bristol paper, colored it a little with alcohol ink markers and cut it out.
I slit the arm in front of its belly all the way around and stuck the the umbrella handle inside. I glued the bird to the card and stamped the word raining again. Colored the bottom edge with a little blue and added torn strips of washi tape. 
It sounds like a lot of work, but it wasn't!

Hope you like it. - See you next Tuesday with a new Katzelkraft inspiration! ;)
