Fussy & Fancy Easter Greetings



Fussy & Fancy
Challenge #7
"EASTER"

This week Fussy & Fancy is being sponsored by THE CHARM BARN so make sure that you check out the Challenge Page for Complete Details on WINNING a $15 STORE CREDIT to The Charm Barn.
Here is another take on the Vintage Image that I featured in the post below this one. Since my EGG CHARM has a more contemporary look, I had to really hold myself back from going crazy with my favorite technique of Distressing. The only distressing I did was adding a little light pink paint around the edges of my image, then distressed using my fingernail. I only adhered the middle portion of the image which allowed it to have a more dimensional appearance.

This card took me approximately 10 minutes to complete!!! Every single layer (inside & out) were pieces that I had lying around my table from other projects. Don't you love not having to figure out what to do with scraps???
OTHER CHALLENGES THAT I USED:
Fussy & Fancy: Easter
CARDS Magazine Blog: Easter
Little Red Wagon: Photo Inspiration (my embossed blue cardstock reminds me of the textured blanket at the foot of the bed, the layes of the scalloped edge & doiley edge remind me of the dust ruffle)
C.R.A.F.T Challenge: Easter
Pile It On: Furry Friends (bunnies are furry)
Simon Says Stamp: Easter/Spring & Glimmer (I think that EGG is pretty shiney but then I also have those yummy light green pearls)
THE ABC Toys & Crafts Challenge: (SPRING is in Full BLOOM) --- DEADLINE Tonight
..........Supplies I used..........
Cardstock: Paper Trey Ink (lemon tart, spring rain, raspberry fizz), Bazzill (pink, light green)
Patterned Paper: Stampin Up (tall tales),
Tools: Martha Stewart (ribbon punch, Doiley Lace edge punch), Provo Craft (cuttlebug & cuttlebug embossing folder), Marvy Uchida (scalloped circle punch), Cricut
Misc: The Charm Barn (Easter egg charm), Stampin Up (sheer ribbon), Offrey (hot pink ribbon), Making Memories (green pearls)
