I'm way behind in The Craft Barn Calendar Challenge which this week is ...




Embossing folder is Stampin Up, inked on the debossed side with Dusty Concord & Crushed Olive DIs.  Butterfly is Hero Arts & alcohol inks.

I made a mask of an umbrella and inked through. All Distress Inks and a sakura gel pen for the rain.

Now only 2 weeks behind!

Thanks for visiting.

Like both of these pages. I know how you feel about trying to catch up. I had to run and peddle very fast

The embossing makes such a "clean" page, love it! The way you colored the April page is really inspired.

That's a beautiful page! I keep thinking I'll still have time to join in with this one, but I think I've missed the opportunity, really - too much to do. Lovely work x
