Happy Easter!

Happy Easter! I hope you're enjoying a lovely Easter Day and I have my one and only Easter project to show today using the sweet Tilda with newly Hatched chicken from the Hoppy Easter Collection 2010. Tilda is coloured with pencils on kraft card and I've used the pretty Mini Magnolia butterfly paper in the background. There are die cut layers and a die cut frame and the Magnolia Easter sentiment is recessed. Theres lots of punched flowers, butterflies (it took a while :D) and paper daffodils, pearls and sparkle too.

To make my egg and egg cup I used a styrofoam egg and covered it in the flowers, made centres with a pearl pen and a little stand for it to sit in from a strip of paper made into a circle. Does it still look like an egg? I think it's lost it's overall shape because I made the little stand to place it in. I used a blossom from my miniature lilac bush in the background, it's so pretty, smells wonderful and is very early to flower this year. 

I'm entering my project into PaperPlay Challenges with a theme of Easter time, Magnolia Stamp Lovers challenge of 'flowers' and Paper Sundeas Sunday Toppings where the toppings are sparkle, pearls, die cuts and yellow.

Enjoy the day and how much chocolate have you eater? :D

Flower Pot Tilda

Hi everyone, hope you're having a good week and if you're in the UK enjoying the gorgeous weather? A card today using the beautiful Flower Pot Tilda, definitely my favourite at the moment :) and this card was sent to my sweet friend Kim for her Birthday :), so now I can add it to my blog and scrape in on the challenge at Cute Card Thursday where the challenge is 'weather inspired' and I think Tilda is enjoying a spring walk in the countryside! The challenge at Stamptacular Sunday is 'use your favourite Magnolia stamp' so I'm entering that too. 

I've also used the spring fence stamp and masked the two together. all the painting is done with distress inks and I've added some handmade fabric flowers, paper roses and embossed the card layers under the image with a Crafts Too butterfly embossing folder. 

Enjoy your evening and thank you as always for your lovely comments.

Hi everyone, hope you've had a good week and thank goodness, it's nearly the weekend :). I'm entering my card today into the MDU Shabby Chic challenge and hopefully I have enough white for it to qualify, well there are lots of light colours anyway :D. I've used the sweet 'Tilda with daffodil' from the new collection and painted her with distress inks. The card has Webster's Pages paper and I cut the Doo Hickey tag from the paper too as I liked the sentiment. 

Have a good Friday.
