Just Add ... Easter!
April 02, 2012
It was a beautiful autumn weekend here in Melbourne. I had the pleasure of spending most of it with some lovely stamping friends and we chatted, ate chocolate (and other treats) and enjoyed the shared creative process. Unfortunately one friend was feeling poorly and couldn't make it - we missed you Kerry and hope you are now on the mend.
One of the cards I made uses this sketch from Retro Sketches and I have combined it with this week's challenge from Just Add Ink to 'Add Easter'. Unfortunately, I missed the Retro Sketches deadline, but here is the sketch:
For the base, I have used the lovely floral designed from the 'Twitterpated' DSP that is now available in the new Autumn/Winter Mini Catalogue that commenced yesterday (1 April 2012). For the centrepiece of the banner I have coloured another of the very cute images from the 'Everybunny' stamp set with Copics and mounted it on a rosette cut from the matching Baja Breeze design. The bunny's dress has been paper pieced with the DSP to match.
|Stamps||Everybunny, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
|Card stock & Papers||Riding Hood Red (Textured), Baja Breeze, Twitterpated DSP, Xpress-IT Blending card
|Ink||Memento Tuxedo Black, Basic Gray
|Accessories||1/8" Whisper White Taffeta ribbon, Silver flatback pearls, Small rhintestone brad|
|Tools||Rosette Die, Circle Nestabilities, Big Shot, Word Window punch, Dimensionals, Copic markers
Thanks for visiting and enjoy your week.
This is so cute Judy and a great use of the sketch, even though you missed their cut off. Thanks for joining us at JAI this week.

Lovely Easter card and I like how you have paper pieced her dress to match the DSP. Thanks for playing with our Easter challenge at Just Add Ink this week.

EEEK - she's adorable!! I love this to bits, Judy; very sweet. The little bow is the perfect finishing touch, and I love the bunny's paper-pieced dress.
