Easter Scene Card

Hello! Welcome back to my blog. It will be Easter in a week. This occasion inspired me to create today's card for the BPM blog.

I am also trying out a new coloring technique, which is using Tim Holtz Distress Crayons direct to rubber stamp. I have watched videos on the same technique but instead of distress crayons, watercolor crayons were used. Since distress crayons are water reactive, it produced the same artsy image. The stamps I used are from the Blank Page Muse Woodlands Art rubber stamps. There are lots of cute images included in this stamp set. 

I cut the eggs using the Cricut machine on light weight cardstock. I used Tim Holtz Distress Oxide sprays and stains to smoosh the color to the eggs. I dried the eggs in between coloring using a heat gun so I can smoosh the egg again using the residual ink on the craft mat.

The letters were die cut using the My Favorite Things Spell Anything Alphabet Die-namics. I die cut this on white cardstock.

I trimmed a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" white cardstock for the card panel. I added heat embossed clouds by pouncing the Versamark ink on the Blank Page Muse Clouds & Drops 5x5" Mixed Media stencil. To make sure I only apply ink to the cloud that I would like to use for my scene, I covered the other stencil openings with a Post-it note. 

I blended Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks (Salty Ocean and Speckled Egg) to color the sky. This is when the embossed clouds pop since it resisted the ink.

I fringed a wide strip of green paper using an Ellen Hutson die. I adhered this to the bottom edge of the card panel. I adhered the trees, then tucked in the eggs to the fringed grass.

I adhered the bunny next. Isn't the bunny adorable as it looks at the eggs like it is its work of art? 

I embossed the word easter using brown and sticky inks. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn. I partially stamp the sentiment since I only need the word easter. I fussy cut this embossed sentiment leaving a small border around it. I adhered this to the fringed grass to complete this card's customized sentiment.

I hope you like today's card. Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a blessed, brilliant & creative day!
