Welcome to another Friday!
Goodness me, parts of this past week have flown by while others have not!
But yay! Friday!
Friday also means a new dare up over on the Daring Cardmakers.
This time it was Miri's turn to choose our challenge and our theme is party animals - aka featuring an animal on your card who is celebrating something.
I went through lots of stamp sets looking for something I've not used in a while that would fit the bill, but ultimately it was my recent Simon Says Stamp Christmas present that fit what I had in mind:
Paper: Crate Paper
Stamps: Simon Says Stamp
Dies: Simon Says Stamp, WPlus9
Other: Gansai Tambi paints, liquid pearls, 3D foam tape, wink of stella pen
So I went with a bunny for my first Easter card of 2016 - I used the Gansai Tambi paints to colour him and his flag in, but also to create a green water-coloured background on my white cardstock to go ahead and cut the wreath and Easter dies from. I added small flowers from the WPlus9 wreath set that I cut from a new-to-me pale rose cardstock from Bazzill Cardshoppe - oh it is just the shade I have been missing!! I used an embossing stylus to dent the inside of the flowers on a mouse mat so that I could then add drops of gold pearl liquid pearls to the centres. The Easter die cut also got a bit of sparkle with the aid of my Wink of Stella pen.
Definitely go check out the other party animals over on the DCM blog!
