Happy Friday, peeps! Yikes, it's the end of the week and I had to scurry to make this card for our latest As You See It challenge! I almost missed it! This week, we have an interesting color combo for you:
My mind drifted to several different ideas....but in the end, I chose to make an Easter card with this cute little bunny I got last year from Close to My Heart; he looks sweet watercolored in Soft Suede ink:
Little bunny was inked in Stazon on watercolor paper from SU, then watercolored with Soft Suede; I added some grass in Shaded Spruce and Granny Apple Green, then attached a piece of gingham paper to a Granny Apple Green card that was embossed with the Vine Street EF.
I used the FMS sketch, turning on its side as well as orienting it to the right instead of the left:
Originally I had planned to do something with leaves, twigs and greenery, but I ended up using them as embellishments behind the main image:
To soften the look of the leaves, I brushed them lightly with a wet aquapainter. Finally, I stamped a sentiment from Fable Friends to finish it off!
Now, be sure to visit the AYSI blog to see the fun creations all the designers made, and add yours to our gallery too. We have had some awesome submissions lately...it's been hard to choose the winners! Maybe yours will be one of them! Thanks for popping in today!
Yesterday was some sort of special day at school...maybe career day or something? Anyway, Cassidy had to dress as a businesswoman and she was going to visit other third grade classes. I was so enamored of her outfit (especially those shoes), I think I missed most of her explanation! Check her out:
