Let's Be Neutral

 Hi!  How about showing off the neutrals!  I love all neutral cards and are drawn to the layers and richness of the hues of one color.  I am showcasing the beautiful new Lost Shadow Distress Ink. 

 I started with these sweet bunnies cut out from ephemera that were a lovely shade of gray and then used the layers of the lost shadow to add more textures.

The background began with the Dina Wakely Coasters 2 stencil layed on white cardstock.  The distress ink spray lost shadow was spritzed over the stencil.  Then the stencil with the ink still on it was placed face down on another piece of white cardstock.   

While the first backgrounds were drying the same stencil was placed on an index card and opaque distress paste was applied over the stencil.  After the stencil was removed then the distress stain spray was spritzed over the embossed background to add the lovely layers of gray. 

When both backgrounds were dry The leafy branches were stamped with gray ink onto the corners of the reverse image of the stencil background.  Additional watercolor was added on the leaves for shading and then white gel pen added the dots. 

The index card was torn into multiple pieces and layered over the stamped and stenciled background.

Then the sentiment was stamped on a scrap of the spritzed paper to add to the front of the card.  The eggs were coated in a mix of white paint and the distress stain spray.  After they were dried using the heat gun. (They held up well to the heat!)  Another layer of ink was spritzed and pooled on the eggs and another round of heating to dry them up. 

The eggs along with some flowers formed a sweet little hiding spot for the bunnies,

Happy Hopping!
