Umbrella Fun

Check out the 'Black & White & One' challenge at Come And Get It:

Sami Stamps are the sponsor and such beautiful designs make it hard to choose, have a look here:
I printed the image out twice, and cut one out to use as a mask.  With temporary adhesive I stuck it over the final image and rubbed Distress Inks over making the colour more intense at the bottom.  Then I spritzed and sprinkled water over leaving it a minute or so before blotting it off, as this leaves lovely watermarks.  For the splatter, I watered down black acrylic paint and just flicked it over. 
Matted it onto black card when dry.  The black & white patterned paper is glued straight onto the black base card - don't you think it looks like those mindfulness drawings that are the rage at the moment?  Even at the ripe old age of 67 I still love splashing in puddles!
