Easel card - spring theme


I started this card playing around with cut n dry foam and Vibrant Primary Big n Juicy ink pad on a square of watercolour card. I then used a Touch of mica mask - Tulip and sprayed with Cosmic shimmer mist - Plum over the inked background. I than stamped over with a swirl stamp and embossed with a purple cosmic shimmer embossing powder and then swipped a versamark ink pad along the edges of the watercolour card and embossed with blue cosmic shimmer embossing powder. This then became the background to my card, which has been layed onto a square of paper punched with Martha Stewart 'punch around the page' flower punch.

The flower images is a stamp from Joanna Sheen - Jayne Netley Meyhew Rabbit stamp plate, embossed with cosmic shimmer again and coloured with ProMarkers. The base of the easel card was created the same way as the background but I inked through the mask with Hydrangea Big n Juicy rather than using the spray. The flowers on the base edge were the left over bits from when I punch out my page border and I just added some stickles to the centre of the flowers.
