I mentioned before that this card is mildly mixed media, but with a little bit of uniformity, you could create a traditional card with the same supplies. Here's how the sample is designed in the photo!

  1. Ink the Textured Newsprint Background stamp with 2-3 spring color ink pads using a single color at a time cleaning between each color so the inks won't stain other ink pads. Stamp on white cardstock and trim to only the edge of the image.
  2. Spray top half with Miami Vice Shimmer Spray and bottom corners with Vivid Volt.
  3. Stencil Nuvo Mousse on top with Harlequin stencil. Repeat on the bottom with another color mousse or darker inks.
  4. Randomly stamp Easter sentiment on the top half of background image in waterproof black ink. Adhere to coordinating color cardstock and tie twine around the top before adhering to kraft card base.
  5.  Stamp Spring Bunny with black waterproof ink. Color with watercolors then trim around image leaving a white border.
  6. Adhere Spring Bunny with foam adhesive to card base.
Classic Variation: Try a more uniform background by using a single color for the Texture Newsprint stamp, stencil in a complementary color over the complete image and then add a single stamped sentiment near the tied twine.

I hope you are enjoying some crafting time today that includes a little bit of sunshine peeking in your window too!
