The April Stamp of the Month coordinates with the Cricut Artiste Collection. All of my shapes were cut with the Artiste cartridge and stamped with a coordinating image. I cut all of my images on White Daisy cardstock. My sun was stamped with Honey ink and then sponged with honey ink to add a two tone look.
I used an extra cloud die cut to use as a stencil to make my cloud background. For the texture on my balloon baskets...I stamped with the bird feather that is included in the set. I stamped each basket twice to form the pattern and then sponged on Desert Sand Ink.
