Magnolia Easel Easter Card - 5 Challenges
This started out to be for one challenge and next thing I knew...I had 5 challenges in one card! This is my first time to try making an easel card. I have been so intimidated by them but then finally took the plunge and decided to try one. OMG! They are so fun and I can see how they could become addictive. I went simple for my first one but I already have ideas for making more and a bit more involved too with embellishing. I could see making an easel ATC too! I think I will have to try that next. If you haven't tried making an easel card and would like to, here is a link to a video tutorial on SCS. EASEL CARD VIDEO
I am submitting this for the following challenges:
Magnolia Down Under: a fabulous sketch which I used for the front / top part of my card. You can also see the sketch below.
Roses On Paper & Belles N Whistles Combined Challenge Blog: Punch It! (punches)
Cute Card Thursday: Dimensions
Just Magnolia: Easel Card
Stampin' For The Weekend: Challenge #35 Easter - I went for more of a Spring look for my Easter card and was quite pleased with the end results.
My images are Magnolia's Jam Tilda and daisy images that I used the masking technique to combine them. I then colored the image with Prismacolor color pencils. Printed papers are by Basic Grey from their Urban Prairie collection. I used my Spellbinders Nestabilities and Martha Stewart scallop border punch. Sentiment is computer generated.
