Under My Umbrella by Reneé Matarese

Hello Ai fans!!

Today I'm sharing a Girlfriends card with you.  I'm sad to say I've owned this stamp for AT LEAST a year and never got around to using it.  It's so cute!

The image and verses are from Art Impressions

I was inspired by this sketch.

I was inspired by the umbrella, the black and white rain coat and the pink reflections in the wet street.

I stamped the umbrella twice so I could "pop" it up to make it look more like the girlfriends were actually under it.

Here you can see the dimension in my center stair step easel card.

This was my take on the wet pavement.  I used Copics to color it and then topped it with Wink of Stella to make it shimmer.

Copics used:

RV00, RV14, B45, C3, C5, N2, W1, W3,
BG34, E00, E02, E37, E43, E50, E81, E93, Y28


  1. Beautiful card, Renee! Great take on the sketch...I love the striped umbrella! I've had this one a while too and haven't used it!
