Some new challenges

Our current challenge on Bildmalarna blog is to create an easel card. These cards look great and are super easy to make. You should be able to find directions on splitcoast or anywhere on the web if you google easel card. I was going to try and give directions here, but what I typed was confusing even me and I just made the card so I think it's better to leave that kind of stuff to the professionals. This card is also my Scrappy Frogs entry. The Scrappy Frog challenge was to choose 3 elements from the list provided on your project. I have used embossing, lace, and plaid on my project.

Now on to my card, I used a piece of beautiful turquoise cardstock as my base. I added some paper I found in my scrap pile I think it is from My Mind's Eye. For my image I chose this adorable little Mimosa on the bench stamp, I cut the image out with my oval nestabilitie and matted it with the scalloped oval. I used the following copic colors to color the image- dress R05, R02, YG03, YG00, flower bag BG 13 and BG 10, flowers YR16 and Y02, skin E21, E00, E000, E0000, R20, hair YR 23, E35, Y21. To decorate the outside of the card, I added some prima roses. One of them was kind of an off white color, so I added some chalk to turn it an orangey color so it would blend in with the card better. On the inside I added the sentiment, Spring, some lace, and a flower I made with a spellbinders die. So if you would like to join either challenge or both like I did, get started on your project!!!
