Hello everyone! It's a new month and that means it's time for a new challenge at the Four Seasons challenge blog! Hard to believe it's May already, how time flies!! This is our last month of Spring challenges for the year and hope you will join us with all your new spring themed creations! As always we have a fabulous mood board but it's optional to use.
I always like to use the mood board for inspiration and had several ideas in my mind yet it took me a while to actually get started on this month's DT card. As I finally sat down to create a card with a May Day "basket" which was one of the ideas I had, I remembered this little cutie from Whimsy Stamps and he surely has been neglected for many years so I scratched the May Day basket card idea and made this card instead. This is "Fluffy on the Lily" illustrated by Sylvia Zet for Whimsy Stamps. I have it in rubber but it is now available in digital format from Whimsy Stamps and no longer as a rubber stamp.
Below is the optional mood board for May.
I stamped the image on Canson watercolor paper with Versafine Onyx ink then used Distress inks and Zig Clean Color markers for coloring. I created a little scene by using a brick wall stencil and a grass stencil. I inked some cardstock with Twisted Citron and Rustic Wilderness ink, cut it out using a hill die and then stamped the words which is also a retired stamp from Whimsy.
The sentiment in black is from the Tim Holtz's Small Talk sticker book. I embellished with a couple tiny butterflies and stickyback pearls. Then I found this twine already tied in a bow on my desk intended for a previous project but then didn't use. I thought it was a perfect finishing touch here so I added it.
