Welcome back! So happy you stopped by for day 3's tag. I just love this one! Hope you do too!
Ink (light green and sky blue, oatmeal)
Easter Grass (Sizzix eShape Store)
Flower shaped sequins
Clear and white seed beads
Foam pop dots (1/4 inch)
Blender Tool and felt
Sizzix eclips2 and eCal3
CUTTING AND ASSEMBLY:
Size and cut the shapes from the Easter Grass file and a tag from the Shape Library.
Color the background of the tag using the ink and blender tool. Set aside.
Put the basket together. I glued the vertical splines at the bottom only and did a over/under weave. Make sure the top edge is open and not glued shut.
Color the "grass" using markers. I crumpled mine up a bit and glued to the back inside of the basket. You can't really see it, but it's there for a little bit of filler.
Using the brown/oatmeal ink, add a little bit of color to the edges of the bunny pieces. Color the pads of the feet with a bit of pink. Glue the pads to the feet and add the tail using a piece of the foam pad. Glue the body to the grass, tucking the bottom of the body into the basket. Add a pop up to the feet.
Glue the basket to the tag. Glue a few sequins to the basket and add some seed beads to the sequin centers.
You can see a little more detail in this image -- the weave on the basket is pretty tight and the seed beads are a perfect fill if you're not stitching the sequins to the paper.
The Sentiment was created in eCal3 as a print 2 print. Super easy and the font is Bodini. Just fill the font with the desired color and set the stroke to none. Size the font, make sure it is set to print*; add a rectangle (Fill is white and stroke is set to none and layer to the back). Print and cut according to the step by step instructions in the software.
*Check preview to make sure the sentiment will print and the rectangle cuts.
Hoping you have some more creative time set for this coming week. Don't forget to stop by the FB page for more inspiration and if you'd like to participate, we'd be happy to have you join in the fun too!
