Good evening, and thanks for joining me as I listen to the wind howling round the corners of the house. First, let me apologize to my recent visitors for my slowness in getting back to visit you. I've had blogger issues recently, and today was an away from the house day for us. I will get back to visit, I promise. Hopefully tomorrow.
Here's my first ever easel card. I can see that I need more practice, but ...well, here we go.
- Sweet Stamps Easter bunny image, colored with copics (very easy coloring too), die cut with S/B deckled oval. Popped up with dimensional foam.
- S/B Lattice die for the mat. (Orange is not a color I think of for Easter, but with the orange-coral tones of the lily, and the fact that there was a Dylusions sprayed piece rejected from Halloween*, well, there you go. Just added some more of a new Dylusion color [Tangerine, diluted with white linen & water]. A little gold glimmer with Tattered angels).
- Memory Box leaf die (green snippet)
- white lace from stash colored with puddles of wet spray left over & made a bow.
- card background was a rectangle of silky fabric texture floral wall paper, in cream/taupe colors. Sprayed with the Tangerine dilution. Let it dry, resprayed. The fabric does not take the ink very well as it beaded up quite a lot. I liked the patterns the ink created so decided to use it for the card background.
- opened fully to reveal the inside layer. A Memory Box stencil was taped to the white base, inked heavily with Versa Mark. Removed stencil. Sprinkled Copper EP and heat embossed. Intended to use some Distress Inks to color this, but liked it as it was, so left it alone. Leaf shape is not adhered yet...still thinking about leaving it or not. Eggs cut from snippets using a S/B D-lite die Wonderful Locket (S2-076) - just the interior portion, which reminded me of an egg shape. Orange lattice backing the sentiment was a smaller shape from the Lattice Die - snippet from the orange paper*. Handcut the white snippet for the SU Teeny Tiny Wishes set - using Lime Green (Colorbox Fluid Chalk ink).
Two more pics - just so you know it really is an Easel card! Hope to do another attempt so that I'm not just making the same ole same ole. Hope you like this one. *This orange paper had been sprayed with a pumpkin stencil last Halloween. The additional spraying of the Dylusions ink covered the pattern quite well.
