Dewdrops in the Grass

 Click to Enlarge

I created a wall hanging using the color yellow which is for the Lessology Wall Art challenge and the Simon Says Stamp and Show one Color challenge.

The base is a metal sign that was purchased on clearance. I painted over it with two coats of white acrylic paint. I stamped the Stampendous Rose Hips stamp multiple times around the edges using a water resistant black ink. (Ranger Archival Ink).  Then stamped the verse in the corner. The verse and the bird are a new Stampendous jumbo cling stamp set. The bird was stamped on white cardstock using the same ink. everything was colored using watercolor pencils for the flowers and the bird was sponged with yellow dye ink.

Finished off with seam binding dyed to a yellow and paper flowers dyed to match.

Hope your week is going well!  I have been busy working on some commitments and haven't had much time to play.
