Easter Sweeties...

Good Morning...
Easter sweeties...aren't they just!  I absolutely love this stamp from Lili of the Valley and if I had to choose only one of these little chicks to take home it would be the little mischief maker who is after the worm!  Totally adorable!

I stamped this image with Memento Ink on Make It Colour Blending Cardstock.  I coloured it with a selection of my lightest coloured Copics and for the first time filled in the whole background!  That was a wobbly experience...time spent carefully colouring and then I go and 'scribble' around it! 

I thought I would have another go at making a rocker card.  There's something about that layout that really suits an image where the little cuties are on the move.

I used Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities circles to die cut the base of the rocker card and a Xcut ovals die for the image and the top layers.  I tried to position the ovals to make the top look vaguely 'egg' shaped.  

I used plain cardstock from Papermania and embossed the cream layer with dots.  The flowery paper is from Maya Road Vintage Spring Basics.

Finally, I embellished the image with some teeny tiny roses from Wild Orchid Crafts and twine and a heart button from The Ribbon Girl.

Here we are...
