Egg Card with This Is Me by Gail
Hello Rubber Dance friends. Gail here today. I'm feeling the Easter vibes so I made an egg shaped card with paint and vellum and Rubber Dance stamps, of course!!
I started by brayering red, yellow and ochre acrylic paint onto card. Then I added some red and black smears using an old credit card. When the paint was dry I cut an egg shape using a die. All my stamping is black archival on yellow vellum. I stamped the Vintage Script on some pieces of yellow vellum I cut with a grass die, to give a nice jagged edge. I stamped the sentiment on another piece of the yellow vellum and ripped the edges. I used pritstick to glue the vellum to the 'egg'.
I stamped the girl from This is Me on pink pearlescent card and again on more of the yellow vellum. I fussy cut both, then also fussy cut the face from the hair on the yellow vellum version. I glued the vellum hair on the pink girl, and doesn't that look fab!!!! I actually thought that would be the one I was going to use, but she covered up too much of the background. I tried the vellum face and decided it looked great.....
I glued the vellum face in place and edged the egg with orange Promarker. Then I used a yellow Promarker to colour some lace and stuck that around the edge. I found an MDF winged key, a daisy and a spikey flower and added them to the card.
I used the die to cut a card base, setting the fold of my card about 1cm below the top edge of the die. I glued my card panel to the base and cut a bit off the bottom backside to stop my egg from rolling all over the place.
Don't forget to check out the Rubber Dance webshop. There is a selection of stamps on special offer so hop over and check out the sale.
I made the background by brayering yellow, orange and ocher paint onto a piece of card. Then I added red and black using a old credit card to make some swipes and lines. I picked a piece that had a nice yellow section and die cut with an oval die.
