"Greeting at Easter"
The tree diecut and tag were both embossed with a woodgrain effect and coloured with a mixture of Dylusions sprays and distress inks. These inks are all water-based, so you can mix and match!
"Eggs Don't Grow on Trees!"
Distress stickles add a little vintage glass glitter effect to the tree. Tiny tags are coloured and stamped with eggs before attaching to the tree branches with jump rings
This fabulous vintage Easter graphic was printed from the Graphics Fairy's blog, then decorated with Glaze pens to highlight the eyes and add an eggshell effect to the egg. Pink glitter pen was used on the flowers, and some white pen on the white rabbit's fur. After drying, the image was shaped and adhered to the card with Pinflair for a little dimension. The greeting at the top of the card was cut from the same image.
The background is coloured and stamped with distress inks. The lace at the top of the tag was also coloured with distress ink to match the rest of the card. I've had a bit of fun with colour lately and quite enjoyed the orange and blue colour scheme. Perhaps all that sunshine has influenced me recently. Hope you are all having a great Spring.
