Garden Hive: May Arts Hop


Hello! All week, the Stampendous team has been sharing fun and fabulous projects that use May Arts ribbon. My project today features a fabulous leaf trim that I just adore! And, since it's Dreamweaver Thursday, I've got a wee bit o' stenciling for you today too.


I used the new Garden Hive stamp for this card. I colored it with Prismacolor markers, and I chalked the background. The corners were rounded around the stamped image too. Next, I placed the Honeycomb stencil on to Mixed Media Paper and  sprayed it with Lemon Zest Dylusions spray, and then Pale Ale Memories Mist to tone down the vibrancy of the yellow.

Next, I cut a piece of Coral Rose My Colors Cardstock to 5 1/2" x 8" and I folded it in half to make the card base. I attached the stamped image and Honeycomb layer to the card base and added the May Arts vine trim to the bottom left corner. That's it for me today! Don't forget to visit all of the fabulous blogs listed below. The Stampendous Blog has all of the prize info, so be sure to stop there first. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
