So I started out with a large blank tag and created a simple Spring background using chalk inks all over the card.
Love how soft and pretty these inks are.
Next I cut out the Altered Pages images I wanted to use in this piece.
I wanted a bigger head on a smaller body.
I then glued them onto the card where I wanted them. Added some of the Spring Stickers for some interest and then outlined her dress shape.
I then cut out the dress shape in the Spring Stripe cardstock and glued it down.
I added some white gesso to the dress and some on the image itself to blend them better then outlined using a charcoal pencil. I then smudged the pencil with a blending stump.
Next I picked a leaf stencil and sprayed on Heidi Swapp gold spray.
Next came 3 drops of Liquitex acrylic ink.
I then sprayed a few times with my spray bottle of water.
I held it upright so the ink would run and then let it dry flat.
Then I used a white Pitt Pen to draw a white outline around her and the lines on the side for some movement.
I felt like it needed an extra pop of color so I used the turquoise chalk ink in places.
I then used my favorite journaling pen to add in some other details.
I used 4 dew drops to add some bling.
Even more pen details, a little more gesso on the bottom. 3D tabs underneath the Kiwi Sorbet paper.
It needed even more color to me so I used a stencil with some fluorescent red acrylic paint.
Next came some fun alphabet stickers and glue over the top.
I then cut out the cute little bunny from the Bunny Cardstock in the Easter Collection and put a 3D tab under it. I also trimmed around her head and bent it up a bit.
I found some knitting yarn in my stash and tied it to the hole in the top.
Then added a brad to complete it. It's now ready to hang around and make you smile!
Hope you enjoyed this piece.
