The Craft Barn Twelve Month Challenge - May

May's page for the Craft Barn Twelve Month Challenge involved lots of masking on my part. This months verse is:
May brings flocks of pretty lambs
Skipping by their fleecy dams. 

I started by stamping the house, wall and sheep and then masked them all. Cutting out those little sheep masks was a bit of pain! I then stamp the trees on the left behind the wall. Leaving the masks in place I brushed on Distress Ink (DI) for the sky and grass. The trees, house and wall were then watercoloured with DI. It looked rather too neat and tidy at that point so I added the border to give the page a little informality. I finished the piece with the computer generated verse.
