The Craft Barn Calendar Challenge - May

Here we are almost at the end of yet another month. They seem to be passing at an alarming rate this year. I'm skidding into the May Craft Barn Calendar Challenge with just over one day to spare. May's challenge has to feature the colour magenta and flowers.

I started by painting my tag with PaperArtsy Fresco Limelight and then stippled Distress Ink through a dot stencil. I stamped the flowers on the bottom of the tag and painted the dots. The image was stamped again several times on a separate piece of card before painting the flowers and cutting them out and gluing in place. Finally, I stamped the words directly onto the tag and added the seam binding which had been coloured with Distress Ink.

I feel May has gone very quickly too... Never mind your calendar is present and correct! The flowers pop against the background, very nice page.
