So I'm officially as far as I made it last year! 6 months done. And I have color notes for more months, just need time at the desk to get them done! Here are April, May and June!
April to me says Easter and therefore pastel colors.
I turned my ink caddy to the Subtles side and started pulling colors! Base is Highland Heather. Accent layer Blushing Bride. Flowers are Balmy Blue back petal layer, Highland Heather center petal, Blushing Bride center, So Saffron dots center and in the background, Mint Macaron leaves, Granite Gray dots in the background and sponged edges. For the ribbon I took the 1/8"Sheer Whisper White and colored it with my dark Highland Heather Stampin' Blend.
May is generally the time when the roses in my yard give us their first full bloom. Bright pink Knock Out Shrub roses.
Lovely Lipstick and Melon Mambo. Had to test them to make sure the went together, and see which was darker but LOVE the result! Lovely Lipstick base and accent layer. Also the center petal, dots in the center and background and "may". Melon Mambo is the back petal. Gray Granite center, leaves, background dots and sponged edges.
June. My first thought was patriotic. Maybe not a common thought for June, buy my Son was born on Flag Day. I debated saving that for July, but went ahead with June. Still thinking on July!
Base and accent layers are Pacific Point. Flowers are Real Red back flower petals and center dots, Pacific Point center petals, Gray Granite centers and background dots. Since we have two dates next to each other this month, I did one blue and one red. Ribbon is the Real Red 1/8" Solid Ribbon. I also dropped the month lower than usual on this one so almost a full flower shows at the top.
Thanks for stopping by! Hopefully back soon! Product details and shopping links below.
