Easter Chicks



Hello everyone and Happy Friday! :) I hope you all have had a lovely week and have a lovely Easter weekend. For my card today, I decided to ink up this adorable egg wagon (from Magnolia stamps) and Tilda with Chicks (also from Magnolia). I inked both images up with Memento Black Ink, stamped them onto PTI cardstock, and colored both images with copics. I used my Circle Nestabilities to cut out the wagon and I cut Tilda out by hand. It's difficult to see in the picture, but I added some Shimmerz to the polka dots on Tilda's dress.

Next, I created my card base (which measures 5 1/2 by 5 1/2) out of SU's Pretty in Pink. I layered Certainly Celery on top of that followed by Chocolate Chip, followed by my design paper from Basic Grey. I added a pink ribbon, then adhered my wagon image to my SU cardstock (which I cut out using my scalloped circle nesties) and then adhered the image panel to the card base with dimensionals. I then adhered Tilda with dimensionals. I used my SU ticket corner punch on the corners and added pearls for a finishing touch.

I'd love to see what you think of my card. Thank you so much for stopping by. I'll be back tomorrow with another project. If you haven't entered for a chance to win the amazing Elisabeth Bell Blog Candy over at Susana's Store Blog, make sure you do so by April 14th. This is some awesome blog candy you don't want to miss :)

Hugs, Christine
