Won't You Share My Umbrella

Today I’m sharing another one of the beautiful Steampunk Zodiac images from Simply B Stamps, this one is Aquarius.


To make up my card I followed a sketch at Crafting Life’s Pieces.  I made the background paper by taking some quotes from my favourite book, Persuasion, and using the Jane Austen font to print them in a soft copper colour on a piece of aged looking paper.

I also made the umbrella using the Tim Holtz Mini Bird and Cage die; I got the idea from my awesome teamie, Jenny (go check out her fabby umbrella and blog).  I used some mesh ribbon and fabric for the ‘skin’, made the spine a bit fancy with some pearls and the handle is a piece of Mizuhiki (Japanese paper cord).
