Easter Egg Hunt & Spring Gatherings - Hello Bluebird Stamps

Hi!  We're on Day 3 of Previews for the new Hello Bluebird Release (February 15th).  My card today combines two new stamp sets that work as well together as they do separately.  They are called Easter Egg Hunt and Spring Gatherings.

Kicking off I ink blended the background panel using Distress Oxides in Tumbled Glass, Spun Sugar and Spiced Marmalade.  I also die cut a panel using Grassy Knoll and ink blended that with Cracked Pistachio.  Both pieces were die cut to provide the simple pierced edge and the grassy panel was  adhered to the main panel with foam tape to lift it up and in turn the whole panel attached to a prepared A2 110lb sturdy white cardstock base, perfect for weighty and dimensional cards like this.

On Bristol Smooth cardstock my images from both new stamp sets were stamped with Archival Ink in Potting Soil.  Everything was watercolour painted using the following colours - Tombow ABTs in 020 and 451.  Arteza in Sea Foam Green A158.   Kuretake Zigs in Brown 060, Mid Gray 096, Dark Brown 062, Cool Gray(1) 099, Dark Brown 062, Light Gray 091, Oatmeal 064, Bright Yellow 052, Orange 070, Light Pink 026, Flesh Colour 071 and Pale Pink 028.  Phew!!!!!!!

All images were die cut and adhered either directly or with foam tape.  Points were highlighted with a white gel pen.

Finishing touches were to stamp the sentiment onto the wavy tag from the Stitched Tag Builder Die, applying it with foam tape and a few sparkling clear sequins were glued in too.

Another card complete and I'll be back for another day of previews tomorrow!  See you then I hope.
