Easter’s all it’s cracked up to be :)


At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Bunnies,Chicks & Eggs.We have the fabulous Stitchy Bear’s Digi Outlet  as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

This is the beautiful New Spring by BB Kakes available at Stitchy Bear’s Digi Outlet.She was a delight to colour up with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers 🙂 For a more detailed finish to her eggshell I gave it a coating of Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint.Here’s a closer look :


I chose some vintage style paper to go with her along with some muted pastel toned Core’dinations cardstock.These have all been cut out with Grand Nestabilities to create an oval easel card.The edges have been distressed and sanded.A length of vintage seam binding has been added under the stamped sentiment,die cut with some Nellie’s Multi Frame Dies.Some punched daisies,with pearl centres, and leaves decorate the top left part of the card.
