Stretch your supplies - Easter card

Hey Crafty Friends,

As Easter is fast approaching I wanted to share with you a card I have created by stretching my supplies. Hopefully this can inspire you all to create something a little outside the box and use your supplies in different ways!

Starting with images stamped on alcohol friendly card in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and coloured using a variety of Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. For fun I added some bunny ears from a stamp set to the Badger! (Click any image to view larger) 

Badger - Grey Brown Tri-blend / Easter Eggs in any colour combination you like to make them bright and happy! 

Next up I took a stitched slimline die, this is from the Heffy Doodle Slimline Trio set, I am using the 2nd to largest die. Starting with a whole panel cut from a blue to form the background. Then I cut 3 further panels from the same die, one in a darker green and 2 in a lighter green. Taking a grass border die to cut the grass affect from the dark green and one light green card to layer up. On the 3rd light green take a cloud die upside down and die cut across this will form a tree at the top of my scene.

To give the panels some texture I splattered distress ink onto each section, Mowed Lawn for the grass, Peacock feathers on the background and Shabby Shutters on the tree.

To finish up I added a tree stump die cut to my upside down cloud tree and a sentiment from the Honey Bunny Boo stamp set by Heffy Doodle. I then backed this onto a slimline scalloped frame.

I hope this inspired you to stretch your supplies and use something a little less usual on your cards! I think the badger looks adorable harvesting his or her eggs! 

Have you eaten any Easter eggs yet? Admittedly I've already had 2!

Until next time, happy crafting!
