Happy Easter

Happy Easter weekend to everyone and thank you so much for all your lovely comments on my recent win. I have such lovely blog friends and I truly appreciate everyone stopping by my blog. 
For my DT post at Cheery Lynn Designs this week I have made an Easter card with some of the dies from their January release, using them also as a stencil. Let me talk you through my card.

I stamped my image and coloured with Copic pens. I then die cut out my Deutschland Border in heavy cardstock and used as a stencil, shading Milled Lavender on to my image and distressed the edges with my distress tool. Layering on to coloured cardstock. 

I cut my Doily in half, offsetting on the underside. 

I used 2 of the Border Strips to the edge of my card, adding a little texture paste through a stencil on to my patterned paper.

I placed my flourishes on, paper piecing in a few extra swirls. Don't worry about your joins as your flowers will hide them.

Finally adding my roses which had been shaded with Copic pens.

A closer look at the centre mounted, notice how the stenciling around Tilda compliments the Doily and Border strip.

Thanks for stopping by today and once again a Happy Easter to everyone, see you all next week.
