May Calendar Page

Just popping in to share the 'May' page I made for my calendar. I printed it off in March and stamped the image but I've only just had the chance to colour it in.

I used an old LOTV stamp called 'Watering Can' which doesn't seem to be available as a digi stamp in their shop, but you can get the Simply Print version 

Apart from green to match the weekend highlights, I was undecided on which colours to use so I had a look at current challenges and found this lovely combo at Color Throwdown  

I coloured the image (stamped with grey memento) with Copic markers:- 

watering can: YR00, YR01, YR02 with overlay of C1, C3 
flowers/ladybird: RV11, RV32, R29
grass/seed packets: YG00, G40, G12, G02, G05
bird/plant label: E40, E41, E43

For the flower that is 'painted' on the side of the watering can I drew in a stem and then added an extra cut-out flower so it looked more like they were growing out of the ground in front of the can.

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:-

Alphabet Challenge B is for Bird
Color Throwdown  Color Challenge 640
As You Like It Challenge Favourite spring or summer - spring is my favourite season, the weather starts warming up, everything starts growing again in my garden & in the hedgerows and there are more birds around singing their happy little songs
Thanks for stopping by, stay safe
