Freshly Made Sketch #73
Hello again stampers, I have a second post for you today, I decided at the last minute to play along with Freshly Made Sketches and here's the card I came up with! I love the bright colors in Sunshine and Sprinkles and it really pairs up nicely with springtime projects, like this card. I started by picking out the prints I wanted to use, then stamped the bunny. I used my Aqua Painter and ink pads to color in the image. I originally intended to color the bunny's dress, but as the card came together the colors reminded me of Emma's first Easter dress, so I left it white with Melon Mambo trim. I used a Stampin' Sponge to ink up my doily with Tempting Turquoise ink. This is a fun way to use those doilies and custom coordinate them to each of your projects. I punched the image out using the 2 1/2" Circle Punch and outlined the punch with my Two-Way Glue and Dazzling Diamonds. I also outlined the Happy Easter banner with the glue and glitter for extra dazzle.
I busted out my new Pinwheel Die - be careful with your platform settings - I wrecked the edge on the first run because I forgot the flip the tab - doh! I found that my paper piercer worked great to fluff up the petals after I assembled it, it was tricky to fit it all together without smooshing the bottom one getting it onto the brad. I finished off the center with a Basic Jewel. I used lots of Stampin' Dimensionals to lift the layers off my card and give it more texture.
I hope you like my creation - thanks for stopping by!
