Happy Easter

I’ve only made a couple Easter cards this year but this one’s my fave, inspo thanks to CASE this Sketch!

ETA:  Thanks to Donna Mikasa for reminding me of the Ovals Challenge over at CASualFridays!


To make this card, I used the second smallest size oval from a Spellbinders die set and sent it through one at time until this pattern was created.  I placed the top panel with the holes over the card base and traced the oval shapes with a light pencil.  I took 9 colors of Distress Ink: Squeezed Lemonade, Tumbled Glass, Shaded Lilac, Milled Lavender, Antique Linen, Spun Sugar, Shabby Shutters, Dried Marigold, and Iced Spruce.  Using an ink blending tool, I shaded the oval shapes in to look like eggs.  I dropped a bit of Mister Hueys in Warm Calico to give them a speckled look.  Hero Arts sentiment and some enamel dots to finish.


I am really happy with how this turned out, thanks for looking!
