May Artist of the Month


Good morning everyone!!  I'm thrilled and excited to tell you that I have been asked to be the May Artist of the Month  for Our Craft Lounge Stamps.....Whoohoo!!!!!   Since Saturday was National Scrapbooking Day and OCL's Friday challenge was to make a page or card with a picture on it, I decided to create a scrapbook page.


The balloons and sentiments from Our Craft Lounge's Love in the Air set were used along with papers, stickers, and a banner from Echo Park's Springtime paper collection. The balloons were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black, colored with Copics, cutout, and popped up with foam dots. Flowers with pearl centers and a leaf diecut finish it off.


The picture is of my sweet friend Patsy and her youngest grandson, Ean.  I am going to surprise her with this page as a gift for Mother's Day...hope she likes it!!!


Recipe:
Stamps: Our Craft Lounge's Love in the Air
Papers: Prism Candle Glow Light, Prism Frosted Teal, Echo Park Springtime
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, So Saffron, Melon Mambo, Pool Party
Accessories: Doilies, Copics, Flowers, Pearls, Die-namics Leaf Die, EK Success Scalloped Border Punch

Thanks for stopping by...have a great day!!!
