May and it's Magenta
No exams this morning so thought I'd have a go at my May page for The Craft Barn's Calendar Challenge - the words this month are MAGENTA and FLOWERS. I'm using 14cm squares which will be stuck onto A5 black card and bound at the top to create a flip calendar.
I'm not really a pink person but when the theme is magenta then you have to go the whole hog!! The background is a pale mix of Picked Raspberry Distress Ink which I also used to stamp the Clematis Tower (from Oak House Studio) in the top right corner. For the main image I stamped the Clematis Tower with Onyx Black Versafine, clear embossed it and coloured with Pentel Colour Brushes. To tone down the pink a bit I've edged it with Seedless Preserves Paint and framed the May calendar with purple card.
It's a bit crinkly I'm afraid but I'm sure it'll straighten out before the year's out. I think you'll agree it fits the bill of magenta and flowers!!
Thanks for popping by and for any comments you leave - they are much appreciated.
