Happy Easter ~ SFYTT
I was inspired by three different challenges to make this Easter card this evening...Jen's Sketch for You To Try, Our Creative Corner to think Easter, and the Shabby Tea Room Challenge #2 required a spring theme with stitching. My mom asked me to make her a couple of Easter cards to send to my neices, so this is the first one I came up with. I love it, but I'm not sure how much a 16 or 18 year old will love it...LOL!
The different layers of Jen's sketch inspired me to break out the Pawsitively Prints Designer Series Paper pack that coordinates with our Build-a-Bear stamp sets and dies. The DSP pack has some patterns that are perfect for a spring/Easter motif. I've forgotten how much I love working with this fun little Easter set, A Good Egg... How stinkin' cute is that hatching chick with patterned shell? The chick was colored in using two shades of yellow, Barely Banana & So Saffron...with a little touch of Pumpkin Pie on his wee beak.
So all of you shabby chic artists, please share some tips for this shabby chic wanna-be? Stitching? ...got that one...LOL!
Have a happy stamping day!
