Well we had a lot of excitement yesterday when we woke up to a 5.7 magnitude earthquake here in Utah! It was pretty scary. It first sounded like thunder, or a sonic boom and then everything started rolling and shaking for about 30 seconds. We had many aftershocks throughout the day which kept everyone on edge. I have only felt minor earthquakes during my 28 years in Utah. This really frightened me, so much so that I ended up with an episode of atrial fibrillation. Those that deal with afib know how uncomfortable and scary those episodes can be. So it was not a fun day and I didn’t get anything done. Today things are much quieter and I am now in my craft room ready to start creating some more cards.
Here’s a card I did the other day. Its another Easter card and I love how it turned out.
I used the Egg Painting Bunny die from Cottage Cutz. I cut him from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80lb cardstock and colored everything with a mixture of copic and spectrum noir alcohol markers. I then glued all the pieces together. For the background I used another piece of the same cardstock cut to 4″x5-1/4″. I used a stencil from Tim Holtz layering stencils called speckles and used distress oxide inks to create the paint “splatters”. I used a strip of colorful dotted cardstock from my stash to ground the bunny some. The sentiment came from a stamp set by Darcie Heater called “Happy Mail”. I layered that panel with some blue cardstock and adhered it to a white card base cut from Recollections white 110lb cardstock. I hope you like it!
