My Easter cards this year feature three graphics from Karen over at The Graphics Fairy. She actually had so many beautiful Easter items it was hard to decide. I went back and forth between rabbits and flowers. Then chose the little girl holding a basket of eggs on a graphic of sheet music for the front .
On the inside I just had to use that sweet little bird. I used Paper Studio paper and cards and distressed the cardstock with a mixture of walnut ink and alcohol. I cut out the bird and used silver glitter glue around the shape. After I had finished all my cards, I realized how close to an egg shape the bird was and wished I had cut it that way! Well, you always learn from your mistakes.
TIP:I went to the Habitat Restore and purchased two aluminum window screens with metal frames. When spritzing with walnut ink stain, I place one screen across two bins (outside - I am too messy). I lay all paper or cloth on the screen and first lightly spritz with a spray bottle of walnut ink (Mixed ahead of time and kept in bottle). Then I spritz with rubbing alcohol(also kept in spray bottle). I go ahead and turn to do the back. The alcohol seems to make the items dry faster. I use the second screen over the top to hold all in place in case a breeze comes around.
