Hello everyone, hoping you all had a lovely weekend and that it was sunny and warm as we had although it seems that Winter might be on the way back! I do hope not as yesterday was over 20 degrees down here and I actually felt hot!
Today we have a new challenge at Make My Monday which this week is a colour challenge and the colours are the epitome (did I really say that?!) of Spring and gorgeous.
I think I just about managed the colours although the background turned out a little more busy than my original intention as I think I forgot to stop in the right place!
I started off with a Ranger manila tag which I coloured first with pale pink paint. I then brayered pale green paint on my 3x5 Gelli plate, placed the That's Crafty! Harlequin Dinky Stencil on and removed the paint in the diamond pattern. I then pressed the tag on to transfer the paint.
I next added streaks of deeper pink and green paints with an old store card. I then used the harlequin stencil to add a pattern with deep pink and grey paints.
I stamped the roses and stalks on smooth cartridge paper with Archival Watering Can ink and added colour with Inktense pencils. I only added a touch of colour to the flowers as I needed a strong contrast! I cut them out and added some colour round the edges with Distress markers.
I added the flowers and stalks with glue and foam tape then finished off with a Chit Chat sticker and some shabby green ribbon.
Have a great week.
