August and Pink Butterflies
Well here is my August calendar page for The Craft Barn's Calendar Challenge where the words this month are PINK and BUTTERFLIES. I'm doing 14cm squares that will be mounted on black A5 card as a flip calendar.
I didn't want to do too much pink so decided to create a wildflower scene - the background is Tumbled Glass and Mowed Lawn Distress Stains and the stamps are from Crafty Individuals set CI-395 - Build a Meadow. I randomly stamped with Leaf Green Archival and used a white Posca pen to highlight the daisies. To give the ground some texture I've stamped the Without Change (Oak House Studio) in Leaf Green Archival too.
I've silver embossed the Charming Butterflies (Oak House Studio) and coloured the smaller ones with Seedless Preserves and the larger one with Picked Raspberry. I've just stuck the bodies down and bent the wings up for a bit of movement. To finish the August calendar is matted on some Picked Raspberry card. I'm hoping there is enough pink on this!
Thanks for visiting and thanks for all your comments on last month's calendar challenge - they're much appreciated!!
