Now on to the fun little post for today! I made two sweet little Easter cards with an older Lawn Fawn set that I absolutely love. My favorite thing about this set is the sentiments! I use the sentiments for other cards as well, especially the "translation" word - you can take any two sentiments and throw them together with that one little word! I love it!

So, today I wanted to do some ink blending. I don't do ink blending a lot because it hurts my hands and arms a lot. But, I wanted to push myself and try it again and, I have some new tools that are coming in and I want to be able to gauge them when I use them against how the regular ink blending works to see if they are actually helping me as I think that they will. I started with a few colors of distress ink to create a subtle and pretty background. I didn't use watercolor paper because I didn't want to do the water spots this time. Once I completed the blending I had to stop for the night because I couldn't move my hands! Grrrrr!!!! Hopefully when I try the new tools next week it is a different story!
|Translation: Happy Easter!!!|
Next, I colored the images that I had stamped with the Memento Tuxedo black ink with the Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. I then cut those out with the coordinating dies and also used Lawn Fawn dies in the hillside border, grass, and cross stitched rectangle to cut the ink blended panels. I was now ready to start putting things together for my scene.

I created two card bases out of Simon Says Stamp card stock that I had received in recent card kits. I also used some patterned paper that I had in my stash to create some interest in the background. I attached all of these items with Stampin' Up Snail tape runner and liquid glue. I also used the Stampin' Up thin strip foam tape for the bottom pieces to add dimension (I love those strips!!!!!!). I then added the various stamped images to the two cards as well as some Wink of Stella and some Glossy Accents. Finally, I stamped the sentiments that I wanted for each card and "boom" we were finished!!!! I loved these two cards - so beautiful!!!!!
