Happy Easter, everyone! Or, as our church family likes to say, Happy Resurrection Day! I hope that you have a wonderful time with your family and friends today! Laurie is our Paper Players hostess with a wonderful theme...I don't think we've ever had this theme, so I'm even more excited about it! Here we go:
I remembered I had gotten this pretty little Inky Antics bird stamp a couple years ago and thought it would make a nice card to give to our church's praise team as a way to thank them for the lovely music they provide each week. I love this verse! Since the stamp is photopolymer, I actually cut the bird apart from the rest of the stamp; that made it easy to ink the branch in Smoky Slate and the bird in Memento Black. I stamped the verse over a portion of the branch so it would fit into the circle diecut a little better. The musical panel is from a retired Cornish Heritage Farm stamp, also stamped in Memento Black:
I added a partial scallop in Lost Lagoon as well as a little stitched scallop along the music piece. My final embellishment was some Silver Glimmer leaves cut from the Everyday Jars Framelits:
For my layout, I used the CAS(E) This Sketch for this week:
I hope you'll play with our musical challenge this week! We can't wait to see your creation in our gallery! For more inspiration, check out what the DT created:
As I promised, here are the tie-dyed eggs we did! Basically, you wrap a hard-boiled egg in a layer of paper towel, drip food coloring on it, spray with water and let it dry.
I have oodles of bottles of retired SU reinkers, so we used those, but I had too many layers of paper toweling, so the designs were rather faint.
They were cute, though! Maybe I should say "psychedelic"!!! She had fun doing them and that's all that mattered!
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
