Easter Card

Hello dears, welcome to April!
As usual on the first of a month, there is a brandnew challenge for you at Country View Challenges.
This time the lovely Corrie hostes the theme - Animal Magic!

Easter is just around the corner and I wanted to use my silhouette stamps from LaBlanche, I bought some time ago. So here is a little card

 I started with a precut specialty stamping paper and some Distress Oxides for my background.
I spreat the inks on my crafting mat, spritzed some water on top and dipped in my paper. then I dried it with my heating tool.
I added some more green to the bottom of the card and dried it again.

Now I started to stamp my little scene. First I stamped some grass with Archival Ink in peat moss and black and dried the stamped image.

Now I added some leaves with Archival Ink in watering can and black on top of the card.

Time for some little bunnies and daffodils and a tiny butterfly. They were stamped black.

 To complete the scene, I added a sun, going down behind the little hills. For that I cut out a circle from acetate with my 2 1/2 " circle punch, positioned it on top and went around it with DI spun sugar.
Because it was not visible enough, I repeated it with Distres Oxide worn lipstick.

To finish it off, I smeared some vaseline over the surface and polished it with a cloth.
I thought, some words would be nice. I realised, that I don´t have a "Happy Easter" stamp, so I added the words "Happy holiday" and I was fine.

It´s not the usual way of cardmaking, so I felt a little bit uncomfortable and recognised, I need some practise 😉😏😋. So stay tuned for the second project this month!
Now hop to the Country View Challenge blog to see what my teamies made - I promise, they did an animal-good job!

I hope you want to play with us this month, grab out your animal stamps and make something beautiful! As you know, you can win a 20£ voucher to spend in the shop! 

Thank you for your visit and stay save!

  4. Perfect scene for Easter! Great sense of perspective with foreground, middle ground and background. If you need to see masters at this style of scenes, look-up some Lavinia inspiration, but, in my opinion you are doing well on your own! Hope you and your family are keeping healthy, Evelyn. xx
