Digi Choosday - Oval/Easter

Hello, nice to see you. Over at Digi Choosday this week there is a new challenge which is Ovals/Easter. I have used a pretty cd this time which is Cherryblossom Lane and it's full of rabbits and although I haven't made an Easter card there are plenty of things on there which would work.

I've made a get well card, I opened up Craft Artist and imported some files in from the cd, I printed out one of the backgrounds and then cut a couple of stips, I added some lovely lace to each piece and then went back to Craft Artist to build my picture, I used a frame from one of my other kits and then put one of the scenes inside it, played around until I had the bit I wanted to show and then put the rabbit couple into the scene. I added some of the flowers around the outside of the frame again playing until I'd got them in the order I wanted.  I saved the individual elements and placed them onto an A4 page ready to be exported and brought into my Silhouette to do a print and cut, almost like ready made decoupage. I am glad I've now got the hang of how to get the images to trace well, giving a good cut first time.
As the colours are soft and pastel I've really struggled to get a good picture because of the light, if I used my daylight lamp then the colours looked too washed out so hopefully you will get the idea.  I used some ribbon to make a double bow and then added a sparkler on to finish it off.

I'm entering this into the following

  3. Fantastic card and adore all the layers. I really must use Craft Artist more to help with the composition but alas, will have to rely on scissors to cut all the elements out. Have a wonderful Easter weekend, Lou x
