Easter Wishes

 Hello Friends

Whilst waiting patiently for my Tim Holtz Chapter 2 dies to arrive, I was looking through some of my older products and decided to create an Easter mini clip board.  My dear friend Kath cut some of the beautiful bunnies for me (how could I have missed buying that die!!).

The base is a Tim Holtz Idea-ology mini clip board.  The mechanism comes off easily so that you can add a background and then return the mechanism.  I used Distress Oxides onto Ranger watercolour card, smooshing the colours until I had the result I wanted.

I die cut Tim's Flower Field die (665369) from watercolour card, coloured it using Distress Inks and attached this to the background.

I layered up the bunny and coloured it with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink before applying a layer of Vintage Photo Distress Embossing Glaze to give him a nice sheen.

To finish the bottom I added another layer of the Flower Field, with the flowers chopped off, adding a Distress Ink dyed piece of seam binding, topped with Idea-ology Velvet Trim (warm).

Turning my attention to the clip mechanism, I used a small paintbrush to add some of the new Tim Holtz Foundry Wax in 'Mined' tone.  I worked in small patches as the Wax dries incredibly quickly.  Once coated entirely I heat set it and watched it turn almost immediately into a wonderful metallic tone (gosh I love this stuff!).

I had some really old Idea-ology Floral Adornments and I used Alcohol Ink to colour these and attached to the clip with 3D glue, before re-attaching the clip to the base.

To finish off I used some ancient Idea-ology Label Letters to create the Easter Wishes sentiment.

I am adding this project to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge where the theme this week is Spring/Easter.

Wishing you a very Happy Easter if you celebrate it.  Thanks so much for your visit, it is always appreciated.
