Easter card

For this small card I used Creative Memories background paper, Spellbinders circle and Petite Scalloped circle to frame the image.  I have had this image for ages in my box of uncompleted projects and although it is probably a Stampin Up stamp I am afraid I am unable to find out which set it comes from.

Art Impressions - Chatting Whoots

Looking at this card it does seem a little on the bright side but I had experimented with water colours and bubble wrap on water colour paper and I did not want to waste my efforts.

Starting from the bottom up - 2 x Spellbinders Curved Rectangles in a brown card stock and a biscuit colour elephant dung paper.  Next up is My Favourite Things Fishtail Stax in a brown patterned paper from my stash.  The oval is from Go Kreate, the Art Impressions Chatting Whoots were coloured in with aqua pencil crayons and a blender pen and they are on a branch cut from a Cottage Cutz die called Owl.  The sentiment is Hero Arts You Hoo die cut with a Sizzix Oval.

Stamposaurus - Lazy Ellie Large

Since taking art lessons I am finding I would rather use Distress Stains, water and a paint brush to colour images in than the usual markers.  This sweet Stamposaurus Lazy Ellie image took me a while to paint but it was fun to do.

The image was trimmed and I used a corner rounder to complete it.  The sentiment and die are both Hero Arts - Everyday Sayings and Small Tag Frame.  The background paper is from my stash.

Marianne D - Bird Branch Large

Recently in my art class we experimented with watercolour paints and cling film.  I did this background by painting on watercolour paper, laying cling film on top and scrunching the cling film up.  It then needs a heavy weight on it and leave for 24 hours to dry.  I die cut the background using Go Kreate Frame Wavy #1.

The Marianne D die, Bird Branch Large, was die cut in white and the sentiment - Kaszazz Lucy's stamps 2019 LM Greetings - was stamped with Aquamarker Fern Green and die cut with a Spellbinders Circle.

The die immediately behind the image is Spellbinders - Polka Dots.
