PWC146 - Inspired by Spring

YAY!!! It is spring... and even better IT FEELS like spring! This weeks Paper Pretties Challenge was to use spring as our inspiration. WOO HOO. When I think spring, I think bright colors and little cute animals... and Easter Eggs! Now I know Easter is really late this year, but Seriously... Spring means Easter. Just like Fall means Halloween and Winter is Christmas!

I stamped with Memento and colored up this OH SO CUTE What the Cluck Image. And The chicken looks so shocked, I thought what would shock me if I were a chicken?? I think if I laid Easter Eggs I would be a little shocked. I think even if I looked at eggs I didn't lay I would be all What the heck are those things?
So I colored this outraged mother up with my Copic markers. I used the 0X series of the colors (Y0000, Y000, G02, G05, etc...)

The eggs and eyes I went over with clear Spica when I was done, and then I cut it out with a Nestie and while still in the Nestie, used the B00 and G02 to airbrush around the edge. The sentiment was stamped with versafine, and then clear embossed.

The bow is cute and I thought it went really well with the scalloped look of the beaded oval. The beaded oval I blinged up with some colored pearls.

I really hope you join in the fun over at Paper Pretties this week. They have some really cute stamps, and all you have to be is inspired by spring and you have a chance to win one of them. And this is available to any stamper - you don't have to use Paper Pretties stamps!

See you soon. I hope to have another Bombshell Card posted soon... I have been working on it. Plus I am getting some new stamps in soon (Bombshell and a couple of Mo Manning stamps from Stampavie, and Flourishes new release), so I should have a lot of fun stuff coming up. EEEEk (Stalking the mailbox).

Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great rest of the week!
