Only three months to go in the Craft Barn Calendar Challenge, I have July, August and September to go. This week we are to use the theme trees, I have decided on July using a digi stamp in the same style as the cute/children challenge page.
The "Blossom Tree" digi image, which is from Pink Petticoat, was run off and cut to size, the flower petals were partly cut out with a craft knife and curled to enable colour to show through when backed with pink paper. The leaves, birds, blossoms and tree were coloured with promarkers and crystals applied to the center of the tree's flowers. I added a bird and a little verse to the calender just to bring in something more relating to trees. Both the picture and the calendar were edged with blue and green distress inks.
I had difficulty thinking what to do for the background, I decided to emboss with a sun ray and colour with distress ink in lilac, a little sprinkle of water then the picture and calendar were attached.
Only two more weeks and two more months to go, I have really enjoyed taking part in the challenges and hope the next few week running up to Christmas will not be too hectic so I can find a little time to craft (and de-stress!!). I am off up north today to spend a few days with my crafty cousin, i'll have to put the blogging on hold as I don't have a tablet or modern mobile to take with me (another hint there for hubby!).
