Hi everyone! Last time I had so much fun creating an Easter card featuring the Easter Eggs digital stamp, I created another one! Also for this card, I created my own pattern paper with cardstock strips. But this time I went for blues and pinks instead of purple and pink. If you also want to see the other version, you can check it out here.
First I printed the created digi scene on Perfect Colouring paper. If you would like to know how I resize digital stamps and create scenes, you can watch this video on my YouTube channel. After printing, I colored the image with my Copic markers.
- Bunny: E43, E42, E41, E50, R20, R30, R000
- Chicks: YR212, YR20, Y11, Y000, R20, R30
- Pinks: R85, R83, R81, YR000
- Blues: B97, B95, B93, B00
- Green: YG63
On the cheeks of the critters, I added a white dot with a gel pen. I think this makes them look even cuter! After coloring, I die cut the scene with Large Mini Slimline Stackables. The sentiment on the card is from the A Very Sweet Somebunny stamp set.
In my stash I checked for matching colored cardstock, and found the following ones from MFT: Cotton Candy, Lazy Day, and Blue Yonder. From this cardstock I created strips in various sizes. On a piece of printer paper I put double sided adhesive, and started to adhere the strips creating a striped pattern. In between I also trimmed off excess paper, so I could use the leftovers as well. If you want to see this in action, Laura Bassen is queen of stripping it up, so I encourage you to check her out.
After my own pattern paper was done, I adhered it on the cardbase, and the easter scene I adhered on top with foam tape.
I hope you like this card and it gave you inspiration. Thank you for stopping by and see you next time!
