I have been a very busy bunny, spring cleaning and getting ready for Easter so I decided to reward myself with a little crafting time. I've been dying to do make a card with the cute new Bluebell from DigiStamp Boutique. I've also been anxious to try out this washi tape that I recently bought from Pick Your Plum. When Designed to Color posted this week's one layer Sunday Showcase challenge on their Facebook page, I knew it would be a perfect time to break out the washi tape.
Supplies: Bluebell and Easter sentiment (DigiStamp Boutiqe),
washi tape (Pick Your Plum), flower (Prima),
brad (Paper Studio), Copic markers.
I wanted to make some holiday decorations, so I made this sign with Bluebell. (That's the great thing about digital stamps - you can make them as small or as large as you want.) I printed one copy each on white and kraft paper. Next, I used my the picture cropping tool in Word to cut and print out another copy of his lower half on white (so I would have an extra butterfly, flower and egg without reprinting the entire image) and cropped it again to just print out the section with his paws on kraft paper. I used ink and a homemade cloud template to create the sky background. Then I colored everything, using chalk and colored pencil to add color to Bluebell and Copics for the rest. The last step was to cut out all the images/parts and assemble everything, layering the egg and extra paws on top of Bluebell and then gluing Bluebell and the flowers to the background.
Here's a close up. As you can see, I curled the butterfly and daffodil layers to add some dimension. I also added some Glossy Accents to his nose, the bow and the center of the daffodil, although it doesn't show up in the photo.
Isn't he cute? I'm entering Bluebell in the following challenges:
Love to Create - Anything Goes
Celebrate the Occasion - Happy Easter!
Cute Card Thursday - Easter Parade
