Rooster Behind the Chicken Wire

Today's mix-ability challenge #58 on Splitcoaststampers is Washy Washy. You are to do a color wash on your card. I misted my watercolor paper with water. Next, I used ink sprays and let it run down the paper. I let it dry a bit and placed my mini chicken wire stencil on top and sprayed again. That is why I have such a darker color at the right top. When all this dried, I stamped my images from Inspired by Stamping (see below)  directly onto the paper.

That was easy and I like the way it turned out.  I added a button and twine and it's finished.

Masculine Easter....maybe

Good morning! Gosh, I haven't been here in a week. I've been busy with other things. There are not enough hours in my days. I'm sure you know what I mean.

Guess what? I made the Spring CAS DT on Splitcoaststampers so I'll be here every Monday with a new Clean and Simple card.

I'm not sure if this is a male card. I just don't know if a guy would like this ribbon.  The colors were to be taken from a company called Design-Seeds and the inspiration is for neutrals. Also, you could have a dessert option of a natural element if you like.

I guess my bunny is looking for his Easter basket and eggs. The things at the bottom I stamped and stamped off are really called Teeny Flowers but I'm using them as pebbles.
