For these cards I used our Blends, alcohol markers which come in pairs of a light and dark so are really easy to blend.
See the full range of blends HERE
a great set of 4 circles, ovals and squares with a stitched border.
The umbrellas I just stamped straight onto the cardstock and coloured with blends. Of course you could use the punch to give them some dimension.
Here is a video tutorial so you can see exactly how I made these cards and have a go yourself.
