Happy Easter

>> Tuesday, March 1, 2016

Hi Everyone,

  March is officially here and that means Easter is coming up soon.  Like end of this month soon...And I hope the weather is warm enough to see some early flowers popping up :)  If not, I can always rely on some lovely spring time flower stamps to bring in the cheer! 

I was going to feature the Happy Easter Cross on my card today, but I had also colored the Easter Lily and  Crosses Oval stamp.  Instead of using them separately, I worked it out and fit them both on the same card, using one as the sentiment.  The were both die cut and colored with different Copic markers, so I challenged myself to make a background that would tie the two together. 

I chose to make a splattered watercolor background using yellow, green and purple dye ink, by inking up a piece of plastic and spraying it with water.  I then smooshed my paper all over and let it dry before running it through my Cuttlebug in a dogwood flower folder.

I added a scrap of yellow card stock to the bottom and a purple ribbon covers up the seam.  I finished it by adding some glitter to the flowers and 3 matching gems.

Happy Easter & Happy Spring!
