Easter Egg Hunt

I had tried out creating a unique pattern using the Drifts & Hills stencil in the Easter card I shared last week...and for today's card I have done the same for my background panel after watching a tutorial video by Jennifer McGuire to create a glazed Distress Oxide effect on glossy paper...I did not have the glossy paper she used in the tutorial so I used Kodak glossy photo paper and got great results!!

To create the background panel,I cut photo paper to size and then dabbed some Distress Oxide Inks on my craft mat - picked raspberry,orange marmalade and squeezed lemonade, and spritzed some water on them....I smooshed glossy side of my photo paper on it to pick up the ink and then heat set it before repeating the process...to seal the ink on the paper I have rubbed a tiny bit of Distress Glaze all over and buffed it with a soft cloth...

I love how simple and quick this technique is....also the fact that it works so great even on cheap photo paper...can't wait to try it out again soon!!

Once the front panel was adhered to the card base,I added a die cut fence to it...I applied a bit of weathered wood Distress Ink on this die cut for effect...I added two die cut grassy borders as well on which I have applied twisted citron and peeled paint...to create depth,I added some craft foam underneath the top layer of the grassy border...

On a separate piece of white cardstock I stamped,heat embossed and coloured in the images and then cut them out and placed them on my card...I adhered the sentiment as well as some sequins and my card was ready...
