Easter Chick by Donna Ratcliff


Morning all! I thought I’d use one of the little Scribbly Birds as a little Easter chick to make a seasonal card for you all this week.

What I used

Tim Holtz Layering Stencils - Doily, Schoolhouse
Brown Pen
White Card, White Card Blank

What I did….

1. I stamped the bird in brown ink in the bottom corner of a 6” square piece of white card and painted him with Mustard Seed Distress ink… 

2. Then I stamped the bird again onto a scrap bit of paper and cut out to create a mask to cover my painted bird.
3. Holding the mask in place I blended various colours of Distress around the bird and also added some stencilled details using the Tim Holtz Layering stencils.
4. To create the wording I used the Schoolhouse Stencil and a brown pen, cut the words out in banner shapes, coloured the background to tone and glued in place.
5. Then I simply ran the brown inkpad around the edge of the whole piece and mounted onto a white card blank. After that I decided to add a few doodled eggs…….well you have to have eggs at Easter!!
Hope you have a lovely weekend and see you next week
