Simon Says: Anything Goes
I have been playing along with The Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge. Have you had a chance to play along? I have and it's been great motivation. This is my 28th day of participating in the challenge.
Last year for Easter, my husband's sister and her family came to visit. In their area of Utah, when the world is normal, the kids have Spring Break the week of Easter. (She's the youngest girl, but my husband is the youngest of all 6. Which is why I want to call her my youngest Sister-in-law. But because of my husband's number in the family, it doesn't work.) While her family was here we visited the Johnson National Historical Park. It's an interesting park because they show you what life was like in Texas. With a live reenactment including the animals on the ranch. When we were there last year, we got to see how they did Easter eggs in the olden days. Which meant that the colors came from either boiling plants or pantry items. My Easter eggs are more along those lines as opposed to being done with fun patterns.
For today's card, I used quite a lot of homemade stencils. If you've visited before, you will recognize the clouds and grass stencil. The new homemade stencil today is the egg, which I colored in Easter colors. I started the card out by stamping the bunny on both the cardstock and a Post-It. The Post-It bunny was then fussy cut and became a mask. That way I was able to use the stencils. The coloring of the bunny was done with alcohol markers. When the coloring and stenciling were done. I then took out some die cut clouds, one was used to stamp the sentiment onto. The other 2 were cut into sections and the remaining part of the clouds were placed on the opposite ends of the card.
