Batik Easter

>> Wednesday, March 14, 2018

I love doing holiday cards in non-traditional colors.  This week I have a black and white Easter card to show you.
I was inspired to make this card when I saw THIS Batiked Scarf at Global Handmade Hope which is this week's Inspiration Site at

To get the Batiked Inspired background, I started with a piece of aluminum foil and I wadded it up.  I then straightened it back up again but left all the little wrinkles.  Next, I swiped Black Soot Distress Ink over the foil and then misted the foil with some water.  I smooshed my Vanilla cardstock several times over the foil to get the look.  I misted the foil in between smooshes. 

For the top panel, I used the new Welcome Oval and cut off the Easter part of the new Deco Easter Greeting.  I also added in the new God Bless You Cross.  I plan to use that cross in some Bible Art Journaling as well.

I tucked in some vanilla doilies and a few leaves to finish up the card.

Easter is sneaking up on us this year!  Hope your week is going well.

Oh my goodness, Nancy, I did a card very similar to this, different colors, but same images. Love how you did this in black & white. It's so pretty!
