Scrapes for Easter

Double Trouble: Anything w/Scrapes
The Card Concept: Easter Blessings
Addicted to Stamps: Holiday

My bg is what was left when getting shimmer spray on the stencil for the previous project, this was copy paper liner in spray box. Once dry I put the stencil back down and used finger dauber to add black ink. Stamped the butterflies with black and added turquoise strip from scrape box. Cross was cut from leftover tape used to create the previous project but scraped brown embossing paste all over it. Splattered focal images with black, white and silver water colors then mat & layered on gray strip and then white cs base. Tag was created on Silhouette but fussy cut and used copic to color dots and splashes after I had smeared clear gesso over the whole tag and let that dry. This works great to add texture and intensive the black before coloring. Tag is popped up with fun foam. Gave the butterfly eyes silver dots from silver acrylic paint with paint brush.
