Hello and happy Saturday! Easter is coming so I have to hurry up with my Easter cards. Today I want to show you the first of the upcoming series!!!
Again I started with the background and used spring distress colors which I blended together and sprizzed with water. I also die cut it with the 'Sew Fancy' dies from Mama Elephant. (no problem at all :) )
Than I went ahead with my images. I used the 'Banner and Wreath' stamp set from Avery Elle and the 'Chirpy Chicks' set from Clearly Besotted. I stamped the images with the doe Lawn Fawn ink because I wanted soft lines. I positioned the Easter basket on an extra sheet of watercolorpaper. The sentiment is from a German stamp set and means "Happy Easter Days" Then I colored the images with distress colors. For the flowers and the eggs I used my clear wink of stella brush to add a little bit of shimmer. I lay down some tumbled glass distress ink around the basket in order to create a nice soft background.
I die cut all the pieces and used the wreath die as a stencil in order to cut out a circle from my background. Then I used foam tape to adhere the background on top of the watercolor paper with the basket so that it gives me a nice shadow and dimension. I clued the banner on top of that and scattered some green and clear sequins. For the cardbase I used a very pale ivory color.
All in all a very simple but cute and springlike Easter card!
I hope you'll have a nice weekend and I'll see you soon.
Thank's for stopping by,
(The Banner and Wreath stamp set from Avery Elle will be available at Stempelwunderwelt soon!)
