All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge ~ Easel Card


Time for a new challenge at All That Scraps.  Today, it’s one of  my favorite types of cards ~ Easel style.   If you haven’t tried one yet, the instructions which can be adjusted to any size card, can be found here.    

The image I used is Swiss Pixies Spring Birgitta from C.C. Designs.   Thought she would be perfect for another Easter card.   She’s been colored with Copics, cut out and attached the card front with dimensionals. 

I added some Smooch pearlized paint in moonlight to the flowers in her hair and on her dress.  I love this stuff for the small areas on an item that has been colored with Copics – it definitely covers over your Copic colors that aren’t supposed to be there!     Sometimes it’s hard NOT to get Copics on these areas, like the flowers in her hair, when you’re doing various shading.  So Smooch paint is my friend!   🙂

I also used a paper doily that I threaded a thin ribbon through.  I added some white Fun Flock to the bunny to make it look soft and furry and a small white puff for the tail.  



Here’s a quick side view of the Easel card style . . .



The dp is from the brand new Basic Grey 6×6 paper pad collection called Green at Heart.  I also used the Martha Stewart Spring Grass punch, which was also cut and embossed with my Spellbinders Nestabilities Circle die.   The sentiment, from Verses Rubber Stamps, was also cut out and embossed using a Spellbinders Nestabilities Scalloped Square die.  I added some white daisies from my stash and some self-adhesive pearls which were colored to match using Copics. 



I hope you can stop over at the All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge blog  to take a peek at all the awesome Easel cards from the always amazing Design Team.    And, I hope you will join us in this challenge ~ it’s really a fun technique!

Thanks for visiting ~ I hope you can stop back later this evening for a St. Paddy’s Day card I’ve made for the Waltzing Mouse Blog Hop.   A VERY Happy St. Paddy’s Day to everyone!
