On to my project.....
With all of these new fabulous new IO Dies sitting on my desk and Easter just around the corner, I couldn't resist making an Easter decoration. What comes to mind when I think of my garden is wee little wild bunnies running around, the birds singing and out the office window of my craft room is hollyhocks growing up against the fence. So there is my inspiration.
I started with an unfinished wooden bird house from the Dollar Store and colored it with Faber Castelle Gelatos. I had no idea Gelatos were that easy! All I did was scribble the Gelatos on and go over it with a water brush.....easy peasy!
Hollyhocks DIE169-R~ Die cut in white and colored with Lulu Lavender, Grape Jelly and Cottage Ivy Memento Markers. Added some dimension with my stylus.
Lg. Fence DIE149-U ~ Sponged with Memento Rich Cocoa.
Grass Border DIE060-I ~ Sponged with Memento Cottage Ivy
Rabbit Set DIE168-C~ Sponged with Memento Toffee Crunch
Bird On A Branch DIE161-N~Cut in brown card stock and adhered to the house. Then green to use just the leaves and sponge with Memento Bamboo Leaves, Then white for the bird and color with London Fog and Tuxedo Black and a white gel pen for the eye. I sponged some Toffee Crunch on the belly. To create a wing I used the heart from the Heart Flourish DIE126-U and cut it in half and popped it up.
Hope you get a chance to play along! Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic day!
