Painting eggs

     This week we want to see your Easter projects at Papercraft Star.  I decided to make a tag (Jan has inspired me) for my project and since it's my turn to showcase an image from our sponsor, The House Across the Bay, I've used the following digital sheet for my focal image.
Easter Bunnies Chicks ATC Digital Collage ACEO Digital Collage Rabbits Easter Eggs Vintage Postcards Background Ephemera Tags 108 
     You can find this sheet right here in the THATB etsy store.
     I've used Spellbinders dies and some purple and green plaid papers with solids in those shades for matting.
     We'd love to have you share your Easter creations with us this week.  Come join in the fun and maybe you'll make our Top Three and win some great digis like these.  There are tons of fun sheets to pick from.
     Don't forget to check out what the rest of the DT came up with this week.
     Happy Wednesday!


Supplies

  • Papers:  Recollections, Bazzill
  • Tools:  Nestabilities, Crop-a-dile, MFT Die-namics Fancy Flourish die
  • Miscellaneous:  Kraft Outlet Natural Twill Tape and hang tag String, Recollections flower and pearls, Purple and Diamond Stickles, Marth Stewart seam binding

Hi Tracy, super sweet card! Reminds me that I have some Easter images from HATB that I need to use. I had those cute purple flowers in my hand at Michaels last sunday and put them back. Why? I don't know, they are so cute! Tootles!

Wow! Love your egg, Tracy! You did a great job on it. Love the vintage graphic print. So sweet to see the little bunnies coloring their own eggs.
Thanks for dropping by. Yeppers! I'm a happy mama to have my baby girl home where I can baby her. I washed her hair today & you'd think I'd given her a million dollars. LOL Oh the little things in life can mean so much.
Happy Huggies ~
