Yesterday we received a surprise visit at the Guild Hall. One of the humabbits my lord husband and I discovered last year whilst exploring the Peeled Paint Port had made his way all the way to our realm to celebrate the Spring Festival! I hadn’t realized we’d made that much of an impression on their clan. He was clearly tired from his long journey overseas, especially since he had hauled a massive Spring Festival egg with him the whole way, so I set him up in a spare room in the Guild Hall where he immediately fell asleep.
This card was created for the Just Some Lines April challenge which started today. Our theme this month is Easter/Spring. Come play along using a JSL image for your chance to win!
I started this card by colouring the Just Some Lines “Emo Little Boy Easter Egg Peeker” image using Prismacolor pencils for the boy and Distress Inks for the egg.
I also sprayed the egg with Dylusions white spray ink and a Tim Holtz stencil to make some subtle spots on it. (It was extremely hard to photograph this). The sentiment I stamped using the Lawn Fawn “Jessie’s ABCs” set.
On the inside I used the Unity “Good Egg, Bad Egg” kit for the sentiment and the image.
I managed to dig deep into my stash and find a stamp that was the exact same shape as that flower brad to use on the envelope. I have no idea what company that stamp is from (I want to say Fiskars) as it is in one of my stamp binders and unlabelled.
This card will peek into the following challenges:
Upon waking this morning I was shocked to see that all the rocks and boulders surrounding the Guild Hall had been decorated to look like Spring Festival eggs. I was delighted with all the rainbowy colours and went outside to get a closer look. I spotted our visitor sitting next to a “blank” boulder, surrounded by paints and brush in hand. I smiled and left him to it, excited to see what else he would decorate for the upcoming festival.
