CS Kit Club April - Hope & Penant

Have you checked out the April Kit from Clear Scraps Creating Made Easy Kit Club.  The colors in the kit are soft and neutral to easily work into decor.   Here are two projects I've made with the kit.  Visit the Creating Made Easy blog for more inspiration from the kit!

The first project is done with the Large Pennant Piece from Clear Scraps.  (not included in the kit, but available through the Clear Scraps store)   I layered two papers behind the acrylic and glued them in place using Beacon Zip Dry Adhesive.
 I used two of the Clear Scraps Flower shapes as a base for the flower section.  These were colored with Silver and Blue alcohol inks and then run through my Sizzix Big Shot machine in embossing folders to give the a little texture.  The border of the Pennant is dotted with pearls using a Viva Decor silver pearl pen.  (Note that Glue, alcohol inks and pearl pens are not included in the kit)  The swirls of pearls ARE included in the kit!!  The pieces was further embellished with die cut flowers and butterflies, and flowers and buttons from the kit.

The second project is done with the Clear Scraps Large Word - Hope.  The letters were traced onto two of the patterned papers from the kit.  After cutting the letters out, they were attached to the back of the acrylic, using Beacon Zip Dry adhesive.
I used Stazon Brown ink and a dauber around the edges of the letters for a more antiqued look.
Then bronze pearl "studs" were added using Viva Decor bronze pearl pen.  I finished by added some die cut flowers and butterflies, along with some of the flowers from the kit.  I used the bronze pearl pen to add centers to the flowers and some highlights on the butterfly.

I hope you enjoy the April Kit!
