Hello everyone, it's April and we have a new challenge at the Country View Challenges and this time I will be your hostess. The theme is - what else? - Easter and/or Spring. I hope you like it!
My first inspirational project is a card with the brand new die by Tim Holtz, the Cottontail.
For the background, I cut out a 300gsm watercolour paper, then I coloured a blue part for the sky and a green for the grass.
I used the following DecoArt Americana paints: Blue Chiffon, Winter Blue, Foliage Green, Green Mist.
Then I added Mint Julep Green to soften the green part.
The fence was painted with Pebble.
When the fence was dry, I embossed it with the Lumber embossing folder.
The sky was embossed with the Swirls embossing folder of the Burlap&Swirls set.
The grass cut out was painted with the same colours than the green part of the card, then I glued it on the card. When the glue was dry I embossed it with the Burlap embossing folder.
After the embossing, I smeared Picket Fence Distress crayon onto the surface.
I inked the edges with Walnut Stain Distress ink.
The bunny was coloured with Grey Sky.
And I used one of the dies of the Robotic die set to make an eye for the bunny.
