The Pink Elephant Challenge #8

Hi everyone! It's a new week at The Pink Elephant and that means a brand new challenge! This week we challenge you to make a paper project (card, layout, journal, etc) with an Easter theme. Super easy...no special tools required! :)

Here is my creation for this challenge:I am so in love with Anya images from The Greeting Farm. I had to use this digi download to create my Easter card! But, since she is pretty big (I could have made her smaller, but I loved her big! lol), I decided to keep the card very simple and focus on her cuteness!! I colored her with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. Then, I added Stickles to the eggs in her basket and Puffy Fabric Marker to her bunny ears. I just had to make them fuzzy somehow. I have seen them flocked, so I wanted to do something a bit different. I think the puffiness worked well too! I layered her onto yellow cardstock and then onto blue Cuttlebugged cardstock with a ribbon wrapped around it. Finally onto yellow card again and a white card base. I rounded the corners on every layer. The sentiment was stamped and then cut out with a Nestabilities die.

Materials: PAPER: Jetprint Matte Photo Paper (International Paper), Cascata-yellow, blue, Colormates-Heritage White (WorldWin Papers) STAMPS: Digi Stamp-Easter Anya (The Greeting Farm), Sentiment (Hero Arts), INK: Versafine-Onyx Black (Tsukineko) OTHER: Cuttlebug Embossing Folder-Bloom Dots (ProvoCraft), Nestabilities-Labels Trio (Spellbinders), Prismacolor Pencils/Gamsol, Stickles-Yellow, Cotton Candy, Lime (Ranger), Puffy Fabric Marker-white (Marvy Uchida), Corner Rounder, Pink Ribbon

Thanks for stopping by! Have a creatively wonderful day!
