Glossy Easter

I made a distress-texture paste background in the past and did not know what to do with it. I used my pink and light reds distress inks on card stock with a stencil from the dollar store and added some Ranger texture paste in transparent gloss. Love the outcome, but it never felt right with my cards. Today I had the idea for an unconventionally Easter card. The Lawn Fawn set “hoppy easter” was once again inspiration for the rest of the card. I used the cute bunny and coloured it in with my warm Gray Copics (W0-W3) and reds (R30-R35) and added some white gel pen to finish it off. The eggs are in the same reds with a little bit of sparkle with my favourite “Wink of Stella” pen.

Instead of stamping the whole sentiment, I die cut the Easter part on black card stock. I did so several times to get a bit more depth and thickness. I added the Hoppy part on plain white card stock and added some pink ink to the corners. I mounted this part of the sentiment and the bunny on foam tape, like the whole background. I love extra dimensions on my cards. if you do not count the background, this was a super fast and easy card and instead of making the background yourself, you can easily add some design paper in a pastel-ish colour to get the same effect. I love the fancy feeling of the gloss paste on this card. Hope the receiver likes it as well. I enter the following anything goes challenges from Scrapping4fun and Love to Craft and the easter challenge from Creative Crafting Uncles.

    I love the effect you’ve achieved on the background… one to remember. The big bold ‘Happy’ pops from the pink and I love layering up sentiments. Sweet Easter card x
