I've left it quite late this month to get my May entry in to The Craft Barn calendar challenge. This month the theme is Magenta and Flowers. I struggled a bit as it wouldn't be my preferred colour scheme or subject, but it's good to have a challenge. I've used the faux watercolour technique of inking the stamps and spritzing with water before stamping on watercolour paper. To add a bit of depth I added a bit of lighter stencilling.
Thank you for taking a look.

That is a beautiful page - I love the watercolour effect you've created, it goes so well with the stamps you've chosen.ReplyDelete
Its a lovely page, my garden looks just like this at the moment with lots of different shades of pink and purple but minus the dragonfly lolReplyDelete
Love the scene you've created - such a bright and cheerful garden!!ReplyDelete
Lovely technique to use, flowers are so much nicer in COLOURS! You are right about the stencilling, it works very well in the backgroundReplyDelete
