ASM - Holidays ....

....  Hello and good evening!  It's time for our new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More!  Our challenge this week is Addicted to Holidays - Easter, Christmas, Valentine, National Holidays or even just a holiday theme - your choice.  Our sponsor this week is StitchyBears Stamps and the winner of the challenge will get 3 digital images up to the value of $10.  I need some Easter cards so I made an elegant card using an image from StichyBears:

Stamps: StitchyBear Stamps Digi - Easter Bouquet; Waltzingmouse Stamps - Spring Baskets
Inks: Memento - London Fog; Stampin' Up! - Wild Wasabi
Dies: Spellbinders - Labels 25 (S5-77) #4
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Kaisercraft DP - Secret Admirer; Copic Markers; Wink of Stella - Clear; SU Card - Wild Wasabi


I really like this image with the lovely spring flowers and fabulous Easter eggs.  I printed the image three times as I wanted to layer up the eggs.  I coloured the image with Copic Markers and cut the main image out with this elegant die.  I edged the image with a dark green Copic marker for definition.  I added some sparkle to all the flowers and to the eggs too.  I have three layers for the eggs - the full layers at the bottom, the next layer is the red and blue egg and the final layer is just the blue egg.  I covered the card with design paper - love the pretty green foil dots - and finished the front with a die cut sentiment in green card.  I die cut the word three times, glued them together and then adhered them to the card.  On the inside I have a mat layer of design paper and on the white panel I stamped a basket of little Easter eggs along with a greeting.  I've also taken a close-up of the eggs, showing the sparkle!!

Just what spring and Easter should look like. Unfortunately not around here as all the daffs that were out are now flattened by the gales and heavy rain orif not holding on to their buds in the cold! Did someone say it was April!
Happy Holidays! :)
