Easter card with silhouette bunny

Hello crafty friends, this is my second project for our March challenge, Silhouette. We would like you to put a silhouette image to the focal point of your project. I did that too. For this, I chose an old Bigz die, the Easter elements by Tim Holtz. A perfect silhouette bunny.

Actually, the background was in my stash for quite some time. I think I made it when the Speckled Egg colour was released and it arrived to me. I really liked it but I couldn't find anything suitable for this nice background until now.

So, first I used the Rosette layering stencil and I blended embossing ink through the stencil. Then I melted Liquid Platinum embossing powder with a heat tool. When the embossed pattern was cold again, I started to blend Speckled Egg Distress ink onto the surface. I placed a little bit bigger paper under my background which edges were heat embossed with Liquid Platinum. Then I speckled my background with diluted Vintage Photo.

The  bunny was coloured with Spun Sugar Distress paint.

But then, I put a layer of pearl shine to the top. For this you can use the Ranger Liquid Pearls but I used the DecoArt Oyster Pearl paint.

What I used:

Sizzix Bigz die, Easter Elements

Sizzix Thinlits die, Wildflowers Stems 1

Sizzix Thinlits die, Friendship Words (Script)

Sizzix Impresslits die, Star Trim

Stampers Anonymous, Rosette layering stencil

I'm not sure you can see it but I put on my each die-cut a pearl shine cover. And the Star Trim was covered with Liquid Platinum too.

If you have a silhouette project, please don't hesitate to join our March challenge where a randomly selected winner can have a £20 voucher to spend in the Country View Crafts online shop.
