May Calendar Girls Postcard

The calendar page for May was my choice and it is from a Monet Calendar.
I don't remember ever seeing this Monet picture before mainly because we usually mainly see the famous bridge scene on everything.
I chose this one because I thought it lent itself to being worked on the embellisher-which is what I used.
I had a prefelted piece of gold felt and used the different slips of the wool colours that I could see in the picture to work the background.
Then I proceeded to work the rest of the scene onto it.
This is my interpretation.





This is the calendar page that I used for the inspiration.






This postcard is for Lynda--I do hope she likes it.

Your interpretation of the Monet picture is beautiful Doreen. I think it is one of the waterlily series - I love them and you have done him proud.
