Birthday Calendar Part Three (by Gerrina)

Hello everyone, it is time for Gerrina's final visit to the Design Team Blog this month. She has created some more beautiful pages for her Birthday Calendar project. 

Gerrina writes:

It is already the last of my Guest Design Team posts at Chocolate Baroque this month, and of couse I made some more months for the Birthday Calendar. You can find the frame and first two months here, the other four months that I made here. Today four new months:

How to:
On the card I had already cleaned this stencil, and then I sponged it again with a round blending tool in just a few places. The lines are made with the same tool and the edge of the stencil. The edges are sponged lightly with the same colour. Then I stamped the flowers with black ink and coloured them with Distress Ink and water based markers. I sponged the two floral sections with blue Distress Ink.

Used Materials:
Stamps: Spring is in the Air
Stencil: Colourbox
Inkspads: Versafine Onyx Black, Distress Inks: Twisted Citron, Tumbled Glass, Seedless Preserves, Brushed Corduroy, Cracled Pistachio
Other: Postcard with some cleaning from the stencil, blending tool, water brush, water based markers.

How to:
Stamp the tulips until you feel there are enough with help from two masks. Colour the flowers. Draw stripes with a black aquarel pencil and a liner and go over the lines with a water brush. Do the same on the month card.

Used materials:
Stamps: Spring is in the Air
Inkpads: Versafine Onyx Black
Other: Postcards, coloured pencils, liner, black aquarel pencil, water brush

How to:
Stamp the rose lady with black ink on a postcard. Go over the lines with a black aquarel pencil and go over the lines with a waterbrush to spread the grey into the image. Stamp the roses in four colours onto another postcard. Sponge the card, and glue the lady on top of it.

Used materials:
Stamps: Mackintosh Beauty
Inkpads: Versafine Onyx Black, Memento: Rhubard Stalk, Lady Bug, Rose Bud, and Grape Jelly, Distress Ink Spun Sugar
Other 2X Postcards, black aquarel pencil, water brush, blending tool

How to:
Draw three lines with a pencil on a postcard, and add some water. Sprinkle each line with a different colour Brusho. Splatter some water on the top of the card and sprinkle some yellow Brusho there. Let the card dry completely before stamping the trees with black ink. Draw a line with a fine black pencil and put some leaves and triangles on the line.

Used materials:
Stamps: Autumn Edges
Inkpads: Versafine Onyx Black
Others: Postcard, pencil, Brushos: Turquoise, Burnt Sienna, Lime Green, Yellow Ochre, black finetip writer

Now my Birthday Calendar is almost finished! Here is a photo of my project up to now:

Only two calendar month pages to go and my birthday calendar can be hung and used. Those two will follow soon on my blog: Gerrina's Creatieve Wereld!
