Shaped Easel Card

Good morning. Here is a card for the Sentimental Sundays #68 - Shaped Cards challenge.

The car blank was made from green card using a grand Nestability die. Various layers, cut using the same series of scalloped dies were cut from the yellow card and also a designer paper for the top mat. The main image is hand painted with acrylic paint using the One Stoke Method on mount board which was first painted yellow and green paint and blended well.

The sentiment, by Chocolate Baroque, was stamped in Green Stazon onto canvas which has been painted yellow. I love this sentiment which says " No matter how long the winter, Spring is sure to follow. The sentiment was cut out with a circular Nestie and mounted onto a green scalloped circle. This was used as the element against which to prop the main part of the easel card. It was bonded in place with foam pads to make sure it was tall enough to act as an effective step.
