Happy Easter

I absolutely love Pion Design papers. I have been admiring them for a while. I was absolutely ecstatic when my order arrived this week. As we will be celebrating Easter, that became my inspiration for my project.

I started by die cutting this main image. I then began layering it using a variety of Spellbinders dies. I used foam tape between the top 2 layers to add some dimension.

Next I began playing with the background papers. My main colours are beige and dark brown. The beige background paper needed something extra. I inked the edges then used a background stamp. I wanted a vintage look, so I pressed lightly and inconsistently so that sections would appear to be faded. 

Next came the lace, ribbon, trinket pin and flower.

Just a small sentiment to finish the card.
