Easter Retro Sketches Style!! =)

Pin It

Today I'm playing along with this Amazing Sketch Challenge over on the Retro Sketches Blog!!
I also decided to combine it with the WPlus9 Monday Mood Board #6 Challenge over on the
WPlus9 Blog!!
Don't you just LOVE these fun sugar cookies!!??  I want to eat them along with those jelly bean eggs!! YUMMY!! So after much brainstorming about what I was going to create I thought it would be FUN to create my own stencil using the Tim Holtz Easter Elements large Sizzix Die!! I used a heavy piece of cardstock and cut out the bunny image!! I held onto the bunny too so I couldduse it as a mask after the stamping so I could trace around the image!!  I used the mask and the Large flower bundle stamp from the WPlus9 Embroidered Boutique Stamp Set!! You have to make sure that you press down good around the edges of the mask or the stamping won't be crisp around the edges and you want those crisp edges!!  I then took a needle and punched holes along all of the dot and stitch lines just to add some more interest!! I took my copic markers and colored along all of the lines and colored in the flowers!! I added some Prima Gems and my image was finished!! I really LOVE the way this turned out and I can't wait to try it again!! =)

I punched and layered three different patterned papers I have been taking the
Pattern Play Online Class this week and I used some of the info I've learned to pick out my papers for this card!!  I then added a ribbon and pop dots to the image and my card was finished!! I hope you love my card as much as I do!!?? Here are some pictures!! =)

THANKS for stopping by and have a Fabulous Week!!
