Hello. Welcome. Hoping the showers will stay with April and the May flowers will bring sunshine with them. Here's my April calendar pages for The Craft Barn challenge. This month the theme was umbrella's and blue. Well I love blue and umbrella's immediately made me think of Umbrella Man. And here he is......
Here's my little heart mini-book/calendar. The hearts were cut using Sizzix Scalloped Heart dies from some patterned paper. This was baby themed paper so I avoided the baby and cut to encompass the lovely clouds, some of which are embossed and glittery. I cut Umbrella Man from flowery MME paper and then sponged on black ink. I tried to get a gradation from dark to light. I wanted it to look like he was coming out of shadow into the light. Very pleased with the effect.
I cut the butterflies using Cheery Lynn Mini Dimensional Butterflies die from the same floral card and backed them with dark blue paper. I have edged the hearts and the calendar tab with Salty Ocean distress ink.
I love that the flowers can still be seen through the black ink on Umbrella Man's back.
