When it Rains, It Pours!

This week at Sketch Support it is add-on week. I loved the sketch so much that I created a second project, only this time I just used the sketch as my inspiration. The idea behind the add-on sketch is to make your own embellishment, but when I saw this little turtle holding the umbrella, I couldn't resist using it on my page.

I cut out the turtle and popped it up by using foam adhesive.

I couldn't resist adding some stitching to my layout. I stitched the squares on the background as well as a scalloped border.

I used a scalloped circle punch to give these little rain boots some extra detail. I used teardrop shaped Dewdrops for my raindrops.

I added Glossy Accents to the dots on the umbrella to make them appear wet from the rain.

I actually won this collection back in January from Nikki Sivils. I was so excited and I couldn't wait to get my hands on it! Be sure to pop over to the Sketch Support blog and check out the other creations using this months awesome add-on sketch.
