Today, with a day off from work, I had a chance to make a card and a journal book to take to the store that is selling my cards. I was so happy to learn that several of my journals and cards sold is a week!
I figured that it was time to make an Easter Card. I combined the Splitcoast Stampers Sketch and Ways to Use It Challenge.
I used a few fun techniques to make this card. First off, the Garden Green mat was embossed using a cuttlebug folder. Before I cranked the machine, I covered the folder in Garden Green ink. Instant distressing! To color the bunny, I used a water brush and ink "squished" into the lid. It is a great technique and allows you to shade your image without difficulty. Lastly, I had ribbon that matched the card perfectly...Except....it was White Daisy instead of Colonial White. To mute the White Daisy, I sponged the ribbon with Bamboo ink! Never sponged ribbon before and it worked!
Let's keep working on those Easter/Spring cards! For Now, Happy Crafting!
