Blueprint of Love
Book Page Eggs

Spring in the Rain

it's been a little chilly and of course i had to play with flowers...cheered me up and i hope it brightens your day too!


the base for this sweet easter hanging card is one of the new (and F.A.B.U.L.O.U.S.) cabinet cards from Tim Holtz's idea-ology is how the project came together...


i cut a piece of grunge with the cameo frame die then covered the inside area with matte multi-medium...i glued and brayerd a piece of dictionary over the medium and allowed to dry...using a score tool, i rubbed along the lines cutting the paper to give me an outside frame...

then i painted the edge with broken china distress paint (dreamy, dreamy, smooth, dreamy paint)...just one coat covered beautifully!


i sanded the edges of the cabinet card and cameo frame then inked them with gathered twigs distress ink...


i used a cloth spritzed with a little water to remove a little of the ink from the painted edge to brighten it here and there...


next was a little stamping...i used archival jet black ink to stamp the blueprint eggs (reg & mini) then used distress markers and the detail tip water brush to color 'em...


i cut the mini bunny out of grunge, covered him with multi-medium then cinnamon stickles dry glitter...the bow was painted with borken china distress paint then inked with gathered twigs...

then some crinkle ribbon, flowers, tulle, a few pins, and two ring fasteners to tie the tinsel twine to...

sweet little spring project to get the mojo flowing...thank you for stoping by!
