Stepped Easel Card

Morning everyone.  Today I'm sharing my second and last card that I have made for the Belles 'n' Whistles Challenge Blog as part of my guest dt work.  The challenge this time around is called Shaping Up For May Flowers.  To find out what it is all about click here to go and visit the BnW Challenge Blog.

For this challenge I thought I'd make a stepped easel card which I think worked out quite well.  I have photographed it at a slight angle so that you can see what I did. I used the BnW Wishes stamp for my main image along with some green Basic Grey backing paper, the Magnolia Lovely Fence DooHickey Die, Prima flowers to decorate, the Martha Stewart Flower Patch edging punch and the Frond Branch punch.

Here's a closer look at the front step of the card where I used the Flower Patch edging punch and hand drew the grass.

Here you can see the fence die a bit better which I coloured using Copic markers.  I also coloured and shaped the punched out Frond Branch pieces before sticking them into place.

And here is a close up of the main image which I stamped with black Versafine onto watercolour card and coloured using Distress inks.

I hope you like it!

Belles 'n' Whistles Wishes clear stamp and Martha Stewart punches came from The Craft Barn.

Magnolia Lovely Fence Doohickey Die and Prima flowers came from The Glitter Pot.
