Happy Wednesday and welcome to Ellibelle's Crafty Wednesday post! It's a new month already and that means it is time for a new challenge! There were many wonderful entries last month and I decided to add top picks in addition to the random winner, so be sure to scroll down to see if you were the winner or a top pick.
For the month of May I decided to set the theme of
"For Ladies or Girls Only".
So get out your girly stamps, pretty florals, maybe ribbon or lace and make something pretty! I can't wait to see what you all come up with, and this should be an easy one....
I made a Clean and Simple Card today, using the Stamp Fluffy Passenger along with the Stencil set Oscillations, both by Penny Black andFluffy Passenger // Oscillations Stencil Set // Rays Stencil // Tattered Rose Ink // Pumice Stone Ink // Stamp Platform
both the stencil is currently available brand new in my Etsy shop. (I currently ship to the US only.)
I stamped the image using Memento tuxedo ink (my go to ink when using copic markers) on Copic Xpress It Blending Card and then used copic markers for coloring. Today I used E000, E50, E43, R20, R21, R22, R14, W1, W4. You can find these and many more copics at Blick Art Materials. (Free shipping on orders of $35 or more - exclusion apply.)
The Rays Stencil is by Stampers Anonymous. I used Tattered Rose Distress Ink to add the sun ray design. One of the designs from the Penny Black Oscillations Stencil Set was used to create a "road" pattern. The sentiment is from Tim Holtz's Quotations Sticker set. (Yes, I admit I'm a little bit addicted to this sticker set and wish it came with even more sentiments!) Framed the image panel using some dotted designer paper by Prima Marketing. I don't think the pack I used is still available - I used the paper pack called "Something Blue". No blue papers though in this pack, I think it's meant to be wedding themed papers. The card base is a simple white Neenah Linen textured card stock 80lb weight.
The prize this month is a
$5.00 Gift Certificate to Mo Manning's Digital Pencil Store.

There were some wonderful entries again last month, but there can only be one winner and therefore I decided to add a top 3 to the monthly challenge. First up is the winner, chosen by random.org
The lucky number was:
That is Vickie.
