Here’s my day 2 card!
It’s a little non-traditional for an Easter card but I still think it says spring! I started off by wetting a piece of watercolor paper and painting it with Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves distress ink. Then I heavily spritzed it with Perfect Pearls water, taped a stencil over the paper, and held it down with an acrylic block and a couple water bottles so that it could dry. Unfortunately when it dried the stenciled image wasn’t quite as obvious as I wanted it to be so I went back over it with a sponge dauber and the same Seedless Preserves distress ink. After I was happy with the pattern, I spattered it with undiluted distress ink and then trimmed the watercolor piece down by a half inch. It’s quite sparkly…
To finish the card I stamped the sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Happy Easter set and then die-cut it and the black frame from the My Favorite Things Fishtail die set. I added it to the card with foam mounting tape and embellished the watercolor piece with some black sparkly thread and Glass Slippers sequins from The Ton. I originally planned to mount the card on a pink or white card base but I think the black pulls the design together much better (as non-traditional as it might be…)! 😉
At the end of the hop I will be selecting one random commenter to win a fun spring-themed package full of fun stamping goodies! Every comment will earn you a chance to win so make sure and stop by everyday! This giveaway is open to US and international commenters!
