Letter U

This week is the letter U, 
so I chose Umbrella.

Well it had to be am Umbrella for U,
living in the UK you really need one. :)
Me and my brolly have become great friends 
over the last year!!
I made this tag using my Silhouette Cameo 
and some Cosmic Shimmer Mists.
I made the background up using the Shimmer Mists
getting my self in a right old mess. :)

The umbrella rain drops design
was draw in Illustrator 
and then imported into my Silhouette Software
so I could cut the design out of black vinyl
The man is a Illustrator file too, that my partner Ian draw for me 
(While I was off riding my horse in the bank holiday sun. Thanks Ian, I am lucky).
I made the umbrella 3d to help make it stand out more, 
by cutting 2 more umbrellas and folding them in 
half and gluing them in place. 

Thanks for looking
