We are all connected by Riikka Kovasin

Hi there 7 Dots Studio fans! It’s Riikka here today to share a project with you! I made some cards for this post with yellow tones with thought of maybe using them as Easter greetings.

While we send out great many Christmas cards each year, no other holiday comes close to that. I used to send Valentines, Easter cards and so forth, but nowadays almost the only big patch of cards I send out are the Xmas greetings. But I still make cards to various occasions and if we happen to visit a friend during the holiday, I shall pick one of those to take with us.

Yellow is the colour of Easter for me. Each spring I also have an urge to get something yellow around me – like cushions, curtains, candles or something! I usually eye some yellow clothes, too, but have learned that even though I’m really drawn to them during spring time, I don’t use them as I stick to my regular wardrobe of black, black and black.

I first created some mixed media flowers for these yellow cards using a die cut flower. I then treated the shape with different mediums like gesso, acrylic paint and embossing powders. I then layered some beautiful 7 Dots Studio papers from different collections to the back the flower up and added some mixed media touches in the background as well.

If you want to see how I made the cards, please see the video I recorded while working with the cards!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Wishing you a pleasant Easter time!
