Happy Monday! I hope your week is of to a good start. We got a snow shower going on at the moment. 80 Degrees on Saturday, and now we're back in the 30's. Good thing it will only last for a couple of days. And hopefully this extreme weather change won't hurt my newly planted apple trees!
I had some time today to get inky today, and decided to use the shaving cream technique again. The new Easter Eggs Sentiment set from Whimsy Stamps was perfect for this technique.
I started out by embossing the egg using versamark ink and white embossing powder. The little chicks and tiny egg were colored with markers, then I used a versamarker over those tiny colored image, so I could emboss those parts with clear embossing powder (to prevent my shaving cream mixture to ink them).
If you are unfamiliar with the shaving cream technique, I did a tutorial on my blog a little while ago, you can find it HERE.
I cut the egg out after using the shaving cream technique. I used my scissors to cut out the egg, but there is an egg die available matching the sentiment set. To create the other two eggs on my card, I simply traced the embossed egg, and cut them out using different colored card stock. This is where the egg die would have really come in handy :-)
The flowers that I added to my card were done using the new garden flowers die set. Grass was done with a MS punch, clouds were done using Memory Box dies. I wanted to add a little "cute" factor, so hubby suggested a little bee. I used one from a Penny Black stamp, and a butterfly punch for the butterfly.
The paper in the background was made using the same shaving cream mixture that I used for the egg. I embellished with some rhinestones and glitter, and some twine.
I'd love to play along in a few challenges:
