Easter Card And My Second Post of The Day


Two posts in one day my I've impressed myself ..this is my first ever completed Easter card, I don’t have that many for family and friends to make so can enjoy putting them together,there are some I will need to purchase as I can’t find any religious stamps to use that I need for some individuals. I’ve went to town with the colours and the die cut flowers on this card, it’s quite a busy card but I’m happy with overall result. The cute little wooden bird on the branch was a bargain buy from my local craft shop; I think you may be seeing more of them!  I used spiced marmalade distress ink to colour it, and then embossed it with clear embossing powder. I was surprised at how bright it is as I was expecting the colour to be duller/ lighter.. I’m getting used to using the heat gun now and not so scared of it!!! it may even be becoming one of my favourite tools.
My next post will definitely be some photos of my fab trip to the Ice hotel and Lapland in Sweden as promised ,be warned though it will likely be photo heavy! Thanks for visiting,..hugs Andrea x

  24. Lovely color palette - I've seen the challenges to use orange, green and white and I have totally shied away from trying it but you've made it look fresh and springy. The Magnolia stamp is just adorable. Thank you so much for the inspiration and thank you too for joining our Easter/Spring Challenge at Di's Digidownloads. Dee
