#254 Easter

Good morning. Hope everyone is keeping well and is not too bored.

Our challenge for the next two weeks at Crafty Cardmakers is Easter. I know many of you will possibly not feel like celebrating, but hopefully some happy Easter creations will cheer you up. We would love for you to join us!

To make my Easter card I started with some Daler Rowney Mixed Media paper, my go to card for messy techniques as it’s flexible yet robust enough to stand up to wet work.

Using #33 a stencil from Aall & Create I spread texture paste through it onto the card. After it had dried, using a combination of Jane Davenport Inks and Mermaid Markers, I picked out the colours mentioned beneath it to create a different type of rainbow. I laid the stencil back over to colour the words to match beneath the rainbow.

Then again using the same inks, I created the blue sky background and the green grass for the bottom. I overlaid Grass Lawn stencil from Polkadoodles to create some definition in the grass with Distress Oxides.

The Bunnies, are all cut from felt. The large one is one of Tim Holtz’s trio of bunnies, Bunny Hop, and the small ones I believe are Rabbit Border from Alexandra Renke. I shaded them a little with Hickory Smoke DI, including on the brown ones. The butterflies are all from a butterfly strip die made by Crafters Companion. I coloured the top ones to pick out some of the rainbow colours, but left the ones fluttering in the grass in white.

The large bunny has a tail made from a cotton ball which is meant to be used with a crocodile clip for colouring with chalks. The sentiment is from Sizzix, Debbie Potter’s Dainty Upper and Lower case.

This card has lots of texture to it, first the embossing paste, and then the lovely tactile and soft bunnies.

  3. Super fun mix media project, love your creative rainbow design!! Thanks for linking up to our April challenge gallery at Die Cut Divas.

  4. Stellar idea to cut the bunnies from felt. It adds really adds a lifelike quality to them - plus I'm big on tactile elements in paper crafting point blank, so using felt here is a double winner in my books.
