Thoughts of Easter

Hi there! I'm so glad you stopped by. Today I have a Stamper's Dream card to share with you. The weather here is finally getting warmer, so my thoughts have turned to spring and Easter. I inked up this Egg Topiary stamp and paired it with My Mind's Eye Alphabet Soup Girl paper.


I cut and embossed the panel with one of the Labels Eighteen Nestabilities, then I sponged the edges. I wanted to keep the image soft and springy, so I watercolored it with an aquapainter and various inks. I added some Stardust Stickles here and there for a little sparkle. I embellished with some plaid ribbon, Pink Burlap String, and a pearl flourish.

We've been enjoying our spring break "staycation" so far -- we've already checked bowling and a trip to the park off our list. We're hoping to go somewhere with the girls this afternoon -- maybe the zoo!  :)

I hope you enjoy your day, whatever your plans may be! Thanks for spending some time here with me today!

Have a great day!
Christina

This is a beautiful card. The topiary is colored so nicely and I love the touch of orange that frames everything.
