Another Sketch Thursday!

Spring is finally arriving here in Massachusetts!  I'm so happy to see daffodils and tulips starting to bloom.  The days have been getting warmer, I've even been able to open my moon roof once!

This Sunday is Easter and today is Sketch Thursday over at the Dreamweaver design team.  So, I thought I'd combine the two.

Here's the sketch for the month, created by Lee...

I created the torn layers on just a piece of paper using some of the new Papersoft from Viva Decor.

I've been working on this card a little bit at a time for a little while.  The little bunnies are pasted, glued and then flocked!  I also added some pink and grey stickles for their little bunny ears, nose and eyes.

The 'Spring Spheres' (Easter Eggs!) are pasted in black, then pasted over with the crackle paste.  I then placed the stencil back on top of the design and colored it with some inks.  The eggs were kinda stark white, so I colored them with some Apricot Papersoft and then used a little bit of embossing powder over all of it to give it a slightly glossy look (like and egg!).  Cut everything out and mount on your card background!

A couple of friends asked about the double flocked bunny.  I covered most of the bunny in white and then once dry, added glue and brown flock in just the area I wanted the stripe.  A small amount of brown is on other areas of the bunny but if you allow the white to dry fully and you don't get glue anywhere else, you should do a pretty good job of coloring the bunny two toned.

Have fun with your stencils and have a Happy Easter!

Oh, fuzzy bunnies – they're so cute! I'm going to try using flock next time. Thanks for the great idea.

The eggs (spherical orbs? - forgot) came out even greater than when I saw them on Sunday. Awesome job (of course)!

I think those eggs are beautiful. I've never used crackle paste over regular paste, but sounds like a great idea. Thanks!
