May Day

Another 1st of the month.  And that  means new challenges.....
Over at A2Z Scrapbooking our challenge to use a sentiment as a focal point.i

I decided to use some older Hero Arts stamps, dies and stencil.  Once again yellow seems to be my colour of choice.   I stencilled the yellow background and then added the large sentiment.  I stamped and die cut the butterflies ND used inks from the Peacock layering inks.

And over at Die Cut Divas we are celebrating spring with Flowers.   we are being sponsored by Jane's Doodles.   Jane kindly gave us some sets to work with.  My set  is called Cake

There are flowers on my  patterned paper and on my cake.   I paper pieced the cake with a  piece of paper I made with left over ink from doing my stencils stamping and then Copic coloured the icing.  The sentiment from the set as well.

So if you get a chance do come and join our challenges
