Hi everyone, how you doin' ;0)
Well its time for a new challenge over at Midweek Magnolia's & this fortnight we have another super duper easy one for you........
............they can either be in your stamp or a die-cut.........I used my favourite Flourish die-cut & also because one of my other faves I have used in another DT card which you will see later in the week......thats my surprise one ;0)
I have made my first Easter card, my plan is to send a few out to friends & family...........hopefully lol. The inspiration for using this image came from my lovely DT buddy Tina..........this is the first inking :0(
My flourishes are of course Magnolia Doo-Hickey 'Swirl & Leaf' die, this is my absolute favourite die....but you may have realised that lol. The flowers are WOC, I'm not sure if the green ones are?? I also added a 'Vintage Pearl Pin' from the lovely Sandy.
This is the inside to compliment the front. The gorgeous papers are the new Pion A Day In May ' Lady 6x6' I inked the edges with Pumice Stone distress ink & machine stitched all layers. The seam binding is from my stash. The punched edge is from my MS PATP punch.
The lighter seam binding I shabbied up myself, made 2 bows & added a 'Metal Rose' from LLC to the centre & '20mm Apple', both I addded white gesso to.
The stamp is 'Tilda With Egg & Chicken' & I coloured her up with my Distress Ink markers & inked the edges with pumice stone.
Colours used are..................
Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo - Skin & Spun Sugar for the Cheeks
Antique Linen & Walnut - Hair
Scattered Straw & Frayed Burlap - Dress, Chick & Bag
Antique Linen - Eggs
Tumbled Glass & Weathered Wood - Background
The butterflies at the top I cut with Tim Holtz 'On The Edge - Butterflight', I cut them out twice & layered them up & added a rose to each centre. I added some beautiful 'Tulle Pleat Trim' along the bottom, I really love this stuff but hate cutting into it lol. I also added a 'Bark Heart' & the sentiment tag is from LOTV. I added Marianne Design small clock & added letters to spell 'Easter'.
I've added splodges of white gesso here & there ;0)
Thats it from me but please pop on over to the challenge blog to see my fabulous teamies creations, also check out who the new DT members are.............we have even more talented girlies joining us :0)
