The Queen of Stenciling, Lynell, is away this week, so this is Pam Hornschu here to inspire you with a springy card this week. Our sketch challenge this week was created by our own Louise Healy and can be seen at left. For today's post, the card I made tips the sketch on it's side so that the flap opens from bottom to top. Four stencils were used for this, but don't let that intimidate you. The Egg (LG670) shape is one stencil, where the white cardstock was run through my Big Shot in order to emboss the egg shape. The stencil was placed over the raised surface, and I air-brushed the background. I then paste-embossed in white the Long Daffodils (LL428) stencil and set that aside to dry. The aqua cardstock was run through the Big Shot with the Stripes (LX7002) stencil to add texture. I added the little paste-embossed Small Bunny (LS1007) in the corner. Once all of the pasted portions were dry, I added a touch of pink to the ears, nose, and toes of the bunny with a Copic marker. The daffodils and stems were alternately masked off so that I could air-brush the color and shading on them as well. The Hoppy Easter (LM291) on the inside of the
card was also air-brushed. A cute print paper was added to the flap along with some fuzzy pompom trim. The egg was trimmed with a scalloped edge. All very bright and springy! Now is your opportunity to visit the blogs of our super talented team. If Lynell is the Queen of Stenciling, our ladies are the Princesses of Paste! Hee hee. Anyway, check them out for more inspiration, play along, and post your link to our Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post. We love to see where your creativity takes you as well!
