Good morning my lovely friends, Monday already but for a pleasant change I'm not moaning about going to work as I've got the day off ! We seem to be back in the grip of winter, yesterday was freezing cold and we had snow, snow in March,eeeeek thats not good. My card this morning is my entry for the Easter challenge over at the Gecko Galz yahoo group. I've used a gorgeous vintage image from Gecko Galz (of course lol).
I've created a background with PanPastels and used Maimeri iridsescent paste through a Crafters Workshop template. Once that was dry I added some colour with Graph'It markers. I've layered the image up over a scrap of card embossed with a texture fade and some cheesecloth. I've added blue velvet ribbon, green gingham ribbon and a little heart charm, along with some cream lace from The Ribbon Girls. I've gone a bit OTT with embellies on this card, I've added one of my bargain birds nest from the pound shop (coloured the eggs with markers), flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, and some faux pearls too.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Brown Sugar: Easter
Crafty Calendar: Easter Eggstravaganza
Live and Love Crafts: Easter
My time to craft: embossing
Oozak : spring
Quirky Crafts: make your own background
Well i'm off to have a very lazy day, after such a hectic week at work last week I don't seem to have any energy so I'm going tidy up and throw some washing in then recharge my batteries in front of the TV with a pile of images to colour (and a large bag of maltesers too). Ahhh bliss!
Have a good day
Thanks for visiting today,
