Lil' Inker Designs March Release Day 2

We are back with our second day of design team blog hops for the Lil' Inker Designs January release.  Have you seen all of the fabulous new products in the  Lil' Inker Store?  You must check it out!  

You should have arrived here from Amy Kolling's.  If not, head to the Lil' Inker Store Blog to start from the beginning.

Today's projects are a bit different for me. 
3d items aren't usually my "thang" but these LID products make them so easy to create!



I seriously want to make one of these for everyone I know.  How cute is this mini easel?  Stamping and painting on "canvas"  then placing it on an easel makes me feel like a real artist :)  This was so easy to make!  First I pressed Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers and Dusty Concord Distress inks onto an acrylic block and spritzed them with water.  Next I heat embossed the sentiment in white and brushed over the sentiment with clean water.  Using the wet paintbrush, I picked up color from the blocks and dropped it onto the water.  I kept adding color until I got good coverage.  I didn't paint, I just dropped color and let the water do the work.  My final step was flicking the canvas with ink from the paintbrush.







I'm not usually one to fuss with goodies boxes etc, but honestly this is the easiest little treat box I have ever put together.  I think I made this adorable bunny in 5 minutes, tops.  It took longer figuring out what paper I was going to use than it took to actually assemble it!  I'm going to make a bunch of these for Easter for teachers and secretaries at the school (unless Ethan says he's too old for this too!) 

Time to keep hopping along now.  Next up is Chrissy Larson, so head over to her blog because you know she'll have something AMAZING to show you.  Make sure to leave comments along the way too, because Laura is giving away 3 - $15 Store Credits!

See you tomorrow!
