I only make a few cards for Easter and this is one I made for a friend. I started by inking a piece of white card using Tumbled Glass DI dabbed onto an acrylic block and spritzed with water and then laying the card on top. I tried to keep the ink mostly at the edges and made it fairly wet as I was looking for a subtle background. I used a heat gun to dry it and then stamped the Chocolate Baroque daffodils in the centre and cloured them with Promarkers. I layered it onto first dark blueish green pearlised card and then light green pearlised card. The base card is a white 15cm. square, and I trimmed a page from Crafty Individuals 6" x 6" Background Papers Book 1 to fit the front leaving a small border. I wrapped a piece of yellow gingham ribbon over the left hand side before sticking it to the card, and the tied a short length into a knot on the front. I then stuck the stamped panel in place and stamped the greeting beside it. The greeting is from a Just Rite clear Stamp Easter set.
I hope we all get to see some sunshine and enjoy the rest of the Easter holiday.
Thank you for your visit here today and for your comments, all of which I really appreciate.
I am going to enter this at Pixies snippets Playground, I used snippets for the stamping and matting.
