Messy Day Easter Cards

Last Saturday I went to a Messy Day with some friends. We spent the day from 10 - 4 crafting, chatting, laughing and singing along to CDs. Great fun!

The first card I made used a fab free watering can template from Waltzingmouse Stamps. Click here to download the template - the page will open in a new window. I printed the template onto SU! Pale Plum CS, cut it out and sponged Pale Plum ink all around the shape. I stamped the leaf from the SU! Petal Pizzazz set a few times in Certainly Celery ink, cut them out and glued them to Prima hydrangea flowers and then decorated the watering can with them. I added crystals to each flower centre. After stamping the sentiment, I finished off by adding crystals to the spout where the sprinkler holes would be.

Next I made four identical balloon bunny A6 size cards. I used SU! Tempting Turquoise CS for the card bases. I coloured the images with Copic markers, used a ticket corner punch on each image and layered them onto Certainly Celery CS mats. I coloured clear gems with a Copic marker to get pink gems to place in the corners. To finish off, I stamped each sentiment and tied Certainly Celery ribbon around each card in a knot.
