ODBD blog on Tues. May 4.
Today we are having a May Day Hop - in the Northern Hemisphere it is May Day and for many they remember making May Baskets, filling them with Spring flowers and leaving it on their neighbours doorstep as a surprise gift! In honour of this tradition through the hop today, you have to find flowers at each designer's blog to fill our May Day Basket. If you have come here from Becca's Blog you are in the right place - if not, go back at the ODBD Blog to start your journey! :)
There will be three winners for this hop. Each winner will receive a $15.00 store credit toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread designs store!
Here is what you need to do to qualify to win:
1. Hop from blog to blog, leaving a comment and collecting the flower that designer is giving away.
2. Return to the ODBD blog and leave a comment that you completed the hop and left comments for each designer. If you were unable to leave a comment for any one, just state their name in this comment and you will still be entered into the drawing. This is meant to be fun, not stressful.
3. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org giving me the names of the designers and the flowers you collected.
If for any reason you get lost along the way, just return to the ODBD Blog for the list of names.
Now, onto my card....
I used this week's Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge for the layout and this will also qualify for the Mad for Markers Challenge to make a Monochromatic Project. I started with a base of black and layered with some Tangerine Tango and Cosmo Cricket Material Girl DSP. Across the bottom third I've attached some So Saffron grosgrain ribbon. This beautiful image is from the brand new As You Graduate set by Our Daily Bread designs and has been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Copics (Y21, YR23, YR16, C3, C1) to create a vivid sunset and I've also added a little atyou Gold Spica to the butterflies. I stamped the butterflies twice, coloured them and popped a couple up for dimension.
As You Graduate and I've added a little Copic E50 around the rim and softened it with a blender so that the sentiment panel was not so stark against the rest of the card. To finish I added some Kaisercraft Black Pearls to the top and bottom corners and I've added a bow made with my Bow Easy to the ribbon!
