Happy Easter!

With these cheerful cards I wish you all a very
Happy Easter
and I have made a tuorial for you
on how to make the background.
I took out all my Club Scrap Neon inkpad colors and 
my Michae Strong honeycomb stencil.
Sponges or blending tools come in handy.

Tape the stencil on top of your paper, so it will not move.
Taka a color and one by one sponge it to the paper.

After you have used all the colors, you can take
of the stencil and the background looks like this.
I have cut this into strips of 2" long to use on the card
and matted it with black paper.

Now on to the eggs. First you stamp them with versamark
and use white embossing powder and a heatgun.
Now take the neon inkpads again with the blending tools
and olor the eggs with multi colors.
Use a soft cloth to rub the eggs to get out the white again
 and cut the eggs out.

The sentiment I typed with the computer.
If you like you can safe these to your computer
and use for your own cards.

Here are thw finished cards.
You see here also the small butterfly stamped
and embossed in white on black paper.

On this card you see a bunny added in the
same technique as the eggs. The bunny is
by Tim Holtz.

Hope your Easter is absolutely wonderful
and thanks for taking the time to come and
visit my blog.


Have a creative day!
