Make My Monday #45

Good Morning everyone, welcome to May. 

I hope you all had a lovely weekend. 

Today is the start of a new challenge over at Make My Monday
The theme for this fortnight is MAY FLOWERS, so if you fancy joining in and to see the rest of the design teams work do pop over.  

As the bluebells are in full flower here at the moment i decided to go with them as my May Flowers.  As well as bluebells i also have white and pink bells in flower at the moment.

To start with i coloured A4 watercolour card with brushos, one with blues, another with greens and the background panel with a very pale blue sky and grass.  I then die cut lots of stems and flowers and shaped them using a ball tool and foam mat.  I then die cut my fairy from white, green and blue brusho card and paper pieced her so that she matches the colours of the flowers.  

Then using spellbinders grand decorative and plain label's 1, I  die cut the card blank and frames from white and blue cardstock.  I mounted the inner white frame die cut on 2 layers of foam so that i had a nice recess to sit the bluebells into.  Computer printed sentiment die cut into shape, silver eyelets added and ribbons and twine added.  Glitter glue highlights to finish.  8x8" in size. 

Close up, i also added vellum behind the fairy wings, she looks to me like she is dancing among the flowers

Another close up.  To build up the depth of flowers i glued a few on and then let them dry, adding them at different heights and angles makes them look fuller and also laying some on top of others.   

Just to show that it does stand up.  

Items used:
Spellbinders grand labels 1 decorative and plain, 
Spellbinders Fairy Cierra S2-103
Memory box 'Arched stems 98842' & 'Fairy flower drops 98844'
