Razzleberry Easter

Razzleberry Easter published on No Comments on Razzleberry Easter

Today I had the time to sit down and make a card “just because”.  No intended recipient, no class, just because I felt like it!  Yea!  Of course, I’m sure I will use something from it since I am starting to plan for a watercoloring class in April.  I went to the Splitcoast sketch challenge for today, SC270,  and it was really interesting.  I wasn’t sure how I felt about the panels having the asymmetry.  Once I started with it, though, I found it easy to work with!  I had some scraps from my Lovely Flowers DSP (hostess) that were crying out to be used…another bonus of this layout!!  Now, I must confess that the reason I had scraps of the Razzleberry paper was because I had used the fun dots on the other side.  Razzleberry hasn’t been my most used In Color this year.  But, seeing that I seem to have Seasonal Stamper’s Disorder (SSD)*, the purple was suddenly really appealing to me.  Purple this time of year does seem to demand an Easter card so here we are!!  I stamped the flower from Lovely Flowers in Stazon on Watercolor Paper and then used my blender pen to color it with Crushed Curry and Rich Razzleberry.  On the strip with the DSP, I originally only had the DSP on the Chocolate Chip.  As I looked at the card, it just seemed a bit dark.  I put in the Very Vanilla layer, used the SAB border punch  and that seemed to do the trick!!  I also divided up the panels with small strips of Chocolate Chip card stock to give them definition.  The entire card still seemed to be missing something so I naturally turned to ribbon!!  Unbelievably (because for me, ribbon usually fixes everything!), it just didn’t provide the balance I was looking for so I dug out my paper piercing tool and my mat pack and voila!

SC270 - Lovely Easter

 

Of course, I wanted the inside of this card to be special, too.  I had just the perfect word set!!  The retired SU set, Glorious Gift, has been well used every Easter since I got it.  Easter truly is a glorious gift from God!  I set the words off with a few more watercolored flowers and I feel like the card is as special as the holiday.  I hope you think so, too!  Thanks for stopping by!
