Loads of Easter Wishes

I'm HOME! Wow... what a wonderful trip - despite all the illnesses. It's good to be home. Anyone want to help with the laundry? :o)

Here's another card we made at my Watercolor Wonder Club class. I'm going to show you two versions, but we made the first one. Both cards were made with the Loads of Love and Loads of Love Accessories stamp sets, and I taught the ladies in the club how to use the Stamp-a-ma-jig so their images would be perfectly lined up. (I can teach you how to use it too! Visit this tutorial.) They were stamped with black StazOn ink onto Watercolor paper and then colored with Watercolor Wonder Crayons and an Aquapainter. The edges were then roughed up with the Cutter Kit.

This first one is the one we made in class and it's done on Brocade Blue cardstock with a layer of So Saffron on top. The Saffron cardstock was wheeled with the Rough Texture jumbo wheel using So Saffron ink. The sentiment on this card was stamped with Night of Navy ink, but I think Brocade Blue would've looked better. I added a layer of roughed up Brocade Blue behind the truck on this one because I cut the Watercolor Paper a tad too short and it needed something to help it take up the excess space. I finished this one off with some of that gorgeous Brocade Blue wide grosgrain ribbon.

This is another version of the same card using Ruby Red and More Mustard. The eggs in the back of this truck were colored with Stampin' Write markers instead of Watercolor Wonder Crayons. I used the Tag punches for the sentiment (stamped in Wild Wasabi) and tied it to some Wild Wasabi double stitched ribbon using Linen Thread.

I can't believe it is almost Easter!

Oh, by the way, I just added a new tutorial to the list at left. It's on how to make those Treat Boxes I made for Valentine's Day (see this post). You can view the tutorial here. Enjoy!
