Easter Rose

Hi there my crafting friends, good to have you back again, this is a new release from Kith and Kin Stamp Company they have been kind enough for us to have the image as a preview to create as we wish to show you the beautiful Easter Rose, so thank you kithandkin, you can purchase her here  so go on over to the link and buy it now!

I started by die cutting the image out with Oval Majesty die leaving in all the tiny die cuts, whilst it was still in the die I inked the bottom of the image with Crushed Olive and the top with Tumbled Glass being careful not to go over the image itself.

Being an Easter image I wanted her dress to be a vibrant colour we associate with Easter so it had to be Bright Yellow!!! I coloured her shoes to match and gave her a basket of colourful eggs, the little bunny I coloured in Tan adding a touch of Light Grey to his White fur!

I found this lovely paper in my stash, I wish I could remember where it came from but I thought it matched the image so well I cut it to size, matted and layered it up onto some Green Satin card and Custard card, then attached the image on top.

For the base card I folded a sheet of Custard card in half, cut some Green Satin card to size and embossed it with Grande Floral Embossing Folder then matted this onto the base card, on top of this I added the focal image at an angle.

I was going to gather a lot of flowers together to decorate around the image but these tiny flowers looked so lovely in a circle as a flower wreath, so I kept to the two colours, I have used Green & Yellow! I die cut a small circle out to attach the flowers to then added a couple of White leaves to break them up and I attached it to the card as seen.

Inside the card I added the rest of the beautiful patterned paper I had used under the image to match the front. Adding the Gold letters to make up 'Easter' in the bottom right corner finished the card.

Card dimensions 5"X7". Do go over to to see what lovely creations the other DT members have come up with.
