Happy Easter


Happy Easter Weekend to all my lovely followers and thank you so much for the comments on my Springtime card, I was overwhelmed with all your kind words. Today for my DT post at Cheery Lynn Designs I decided to make a Spring card filled with Easter inspiration.


I started by layering 2 layers of paper onto my base card adding Stickles at the edge for a touch of sparkle. I layered on part of my doily as an accent, this helped my Basket pop from the design against the busy floral paper.


My Happy Easter was layered twice for a shadow effect, adding my branches and flowers which had been shaded with Copics.


My sweet Easter Chicks were shaded with Distress Inks. I coloured their feet and beaks with Copics and finished them by adding a little black liquid pearls onto their eye. Mounting them onto the Grass Border Strip.


My Basket I die cut in purple cardstock and then used our Special Effects technique demonstrated HERE to get the background. Layering in my Eggs with a touch of Silicone Glue and adding a little Satin Bow.

Thanks for stopping by today and good luck to everyone entering the Cheery Lynn Designs Current Challenge - Anything Goes.

Crafty Hugs,

  2. Another gorgeous Easter card Julie. Your little chicks are adorable and the basket of eggs is a lovely focal point. The drop shadow effect on the sentiment is a great idea and the purple and yellow colour scheme is very pretty. Sally.x.
