May at Stamping Sensations


It is the first Sunday of the month and time for our May challenge at Stamping Sensations. Spring is such a wonderful time of year so we have a theme to compliment the season.................

********Close to Nature********

We are looking for flowers, trees, wild animals and insects, in fact anything associated with the wonders of Nature and the great outdoors which surround us every day.

Please can I remind you we are a stamping challenge so must see a stamped image which reflects the theme as the focal element of your artwork , this means:


Stamping must be the central point of attention and interest

Both of my cards were made with Hobby Art stamps, Stamped in memento Desert Sand and coloured with watercolour markers. I think this is my new favourite technique, and very satisfying to colour 😊
Our sponsors this month are Chocolate Baroque, and there is a great prize on offer!
Do pop over to the challenge blog and take a look at the fabulous creations from my talented team mates! This is obviously an inspirational theme for them all.
Thanks for looking!

Hi Sally two beautiful cards, I love the designs and the fab colouring. That's the sentiment I've lost, took it off the acetate to use, turned to get something else and stamp disappeared, searched high and low, obviously it's in the crafting blackhole, Kate x

Lovely cards! The bunny one especially caught my eye as we have one (probably a lot more, actually!) in the neighborhood right now--driving my puppy dog crazy!
