Multi Challenge Easter Card


This card I based On Sketch Saturday as I loved the Layout but as so many challenges are Easter Themes, it turned out to be a multi challenge card. 


I chose a masking theme the other week for the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge and really enjoyed it so chose to try this technique again as I dont do it often enough. I used Tilda and the Wagon Of Eggs from the spring kit and a Magnolia background scene. I stamped Tilda onto cardstock. Stamped another image and masked tilda. Then stamped the wagon, slightly overlapping. Masked the wagon and having Tilda still masked stamped the background over the 2 images. Then coloured the whole thing with Copic Markers. The Backing Paper is from American Crafts, the border bunch is Martha Stewart and the Flower is made with Papershapers Reto Punch. The swirls are also Papershaper Swirl punch available from The Hobby House. Added my favourite gold leaves and small rosebuds to finish.


I really enjoyed making this card, its nice and colourful and I'm happy with the way the scene has turned out. But like I said its a multi challenge card and I have entered it into 6. Could have been more! I add any new challenge sites to my sidebar and update my list everyday so here it what I am entering this card for:
Dutchdare - Easter
Sketch Saturday - Followed the Sketch
The kids are behaving and Jessica breaks up today for 1 week so I can hopefully get at at least 1 lay in and lots of crafting. Have a great week and my heartful thanks to the amount of peeps who have left comments on my post below, think thats a record amount for me.
TTFN!
