Craft Barn Calendar Challenge - April
This month's calendar page asks for the colour blue and umbrellas. Here is my entry using a stamp from Non Sequitur's kimonos and cranes set. For the background I mixed white & ultramarine Brushos with water to make a wash which I painted over some cloud shaped masks. When dry I stamped the Studio G border in Versafine crimson red. The main image was stamped separately, coloured with coloursoft pencils and cut out. I stamped an extra umbrella which I mounted on foam pads. A small piece of fabric tape was used to ground the image (although she still appears to have some clouds below her LOL, perhaps she's an oriental Mary Poppins!).
I will try and visit you all if I can but this month may be difficult.
