Hello friends! It's April 1 and I find myself wondering where did March go? For me (where I live) April means hopefully no more snow and warmer temperatures, so yes I'm happy it's April! Easter is almost here so I had to get a few goodies made.
I choose several distress paint colors to brighten my eggs. I used a smidge of white to mute the bright colors a little. I did add a little water to the paint to make it a little more translucent on the eggs.
I choose several Easter and spring themed stamps for my tissue paper. I used black Stazon ink to stamp on the plain tissue paper. Stamp one layer of tissue at a time and then air dry.
To ensure the tissue paper will be virtually invisible, make sure you have a generous coat of multi medium applied to your egg before laying the tissue on top. You can always use your finger as a squeegee to remove excess multi medium, just be careful not to tear the tissue paper. Then air dry.
If you want it a little darker just add another mark and do a little more smudging.
I just had to make an Easter card to go with my Easter eggs! ;)
I shaded the paper with walnut stain distress ink and a blending tool and distressed with a bone folder.
I used a lower profile foam square for the left side and a higher profile foam square for the right side. The right side needs a little more room for the bunny to rest, between the two layers of grass.
My original inspiration for this bunny was from a tim project here. Still love that little wool felt bunny!!! I colored the Heirloom Rose using mushroom, lemonade and gold alcohol ink.
I misted a little water onto the stamp after it was inked to create that watercolor color affect on the paper. Then dried the watercolor paper with a heat tool.
I cut out the eggs, then shaded with walnut stain distress ink and a blending tool. Then distressed with a bone folder.
I found the word "blessings" in Tim's big chat stickers and thought it would work great for my card. I shaded with antique linen distress ink and cut notches out of each side with my scissors.
I diecut the curvy banner with Kraft Core cardstock #2, but I decided to give it a flip and use the kraft color instead of the pink. I stamped Easter using Hero Arts Printers Type alphabet set and black Archival Ink. I added a crinkle ribbon bow and finished gluing everything in place.
