Happy Easter everyone :-) I made this card for my 9 yo DD for Easter. This is also my card for the SCS March Fan Club Challenge of Word Play plus the Central Theme of Just Hatched.
This is also my card for the SCS Technique Lovers Challenge TLC418 of 'Gotta Love Circles' from February. As you can see from my card, I have used LOTS of circles! See this link for the details on this challenge: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...a-t569388.html
This is my first time making a Circular Side Step card and you can find Beate's Tutorial here on SCS by looking at the Tutorials section and search for 'Circular Side Step Card'. My card is slightly different to this tutorial because I only have one fold at the far RHS. I used my Lifestyle (formerly Quickutz) Nesting Circles and Big Shot to cut out the card base and designer paper - and the same dies plus the Lifestyle Nesting Scalloped Circles for the image. I used my Spellbinder Circle and Scalloped Circles Nestabilities for the sentiment because they fitted the sentiment size perfectly. I used my Scor-Pal to do all the scoring.
The Penny Black image was stamped onto 140lb watercolour paper with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink and coloured with Derwent Watercolour pencils and a small round #2 paintbrush. I added some Kindyglitz Crystalina glitter glue to the orange flowers + the bunny's and chick's cheek. I chalked around the image with blue Kaisercolour chalk for the sky and green, brown and grey chalk for the ground. I used my EK Success Arrows border punch to punch tiny little hearts using light green, buttercream and pale orange cardstock (the leftover punchies look like tiny hearts to me) and glued them next to the chick with Tombow glue.
The sentiment is by Lili of the Valley UK and was stamped using the same ink. I coloured the tiny flowers on the LHS and RHS of the sentiment with watercolour pencils and then added Kindyglitz.
The organza ribbon was attached in 2 separate elements and the bow itself was made with my Bow Easy. I added Fray Stop to the cut edges to stop them from fraying.
The buttons are from my stash and have had matching sewing thread sewn them and were then glued on using Crafter's Pick Incredibly Tacky glue.
The designer paper is by Doodlebug and has been in my stash for a very long time.
