Make a Splash!

Hello Everyone!

Today I’m playing along with CAS challenge at The Paper Players where the theme is ‘April Showers’.

I pondered this card for a while as I really wanted to use a sentiment that says ‘April showers bring May flowers’ but I couldn’t come up with a design that I liked using the sentiment (which is quite large)…. Then I remembered the My Monthly Hero February 2017 kit…

Confession time here, friends…. I am ashamed to say that I bought this kit when it came out… but I have NEVER used it. In fact it still had the bow around it. How embarrassing! At least I know I tend to use my new stuff quite quickly nowadays… and at least I am using the kit now… albeit five years on.

I created a soft background using a hexagon stencil and then stamped/die cut the images before colouring them with Twinkling H2Os. I wanted to use a different sentiment from those in the set and tried an old Simon Says Stamp sentiment first. Sadly part of the stamp wouldn’t stamp out so I had to abandon that idea and rather than add a sentiment to cover it up, I quickly created another ink-blended hexagon.

This time I added a Reverse Confetti sentiment without incident (phew)!

Thanks for stopping by!
