April SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the April SOTM Blog Hop.

This month, the featured stamp set is Scandinavian Folk Art Greetings. The images in that set are shown below. 

You should have arrived here from Haley Dyer's blog. If you get lost, a list of all participants can be found on Melinda Everitt's blog

I really struggled with what to do with the images in this set. I finally settled on using the single flower image and taking part of the window image to use in the square. The colour scheme is Peacock, Lagoon and Sundance. I used the Multi-Square Window Thin Cut to create the Lagoon square and I spattered the sentiment section with the Sundance Shimmer Brush. The card front was mounted on a piece of patterned paper from the Mix-In paper pack. Finally, a few gold sequins were added and the centres of the flowers were coloured. 

The next stop on this blog hop is Becca Whitham's blog. I am sure she has something awesome to share with you!

  9. Hi, Alyson! I think you did a great job. I'm a big fan of the Scandi and looked at this set, mainly the boot as I have other stamps of the other set images. So I passed but I did look! Your orderly pattern and color choices makes this a lovely card. XOX
