The challenge for the beautiful month of May is
and our generous sponsor is
and I’m am thrilled to be using their beautiful stamp set, Elegant Florals 2.
I sponged a piece of white cs with distress spun sugar and then stamped the flowers with HA intense black ink – it’s archival and thus great for watercoloring. Then I used my spun sugar distress pen and a little water to give the flowers a deeper tone of pink and distress pen in peeled paint for the stems. Also spattered some water drops. The piece was then die cut and mounted on a little larger piece of pink cs. I used my stamp positioner to line up the flowers again for the background on the white base. The “wishing” was die cut and the rest of the sentiment was stamped. I blocked off the “wishing” on the stamp with a piece of tape, inked it, removed the tape and stamped. I love this HA sentiment from the April My Monthly Hero kit because it can be used for various occasions. My first card for this blog was basically the same design, but I really like it and thought it worked well with this stamp.
Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to enter our May challenge here and have a chance to win a prize from Gina K.
