Another Easter card today!

I used Jen’s SFYTT for the LO of the card:

And I used Ashley’s Etsy Inspired challenge as the inspiration for the embellie in Jen’s sketch – here is my inspiration piece from Handmade by Rebecca:








AND the card:

I LOVE this paper I ran across in my stash from blossoms and butterflies. I thought it would make a great background for the embellie. I just stamped in versamark and then embossed with silver embossing powder. next i covered the back of the Tim Holtz fragment piece with glossy accents and laid it over the embossing. i kind of moved it around a bit to get the glossy accents spread completely under the piece and then smooshed out the air bubbles so it is perfectly clear.  All of the stamps are from the My Favorite Things Hoppy Easter set which is CHOCK FULL of very cute little easter images AND on sale right now for almost half price!!!  the images are colored with prismas and gamsol – yep i pulled out my poor neglected pencils!  the top panel has an images stamped in versamark and dusted with perfect pearls sunflower sparkle and then accented with dots of liquid pearls.  the easter egg is also decorated with liquid pearls.  a great way to add dimension and a bit of shimmer quickly!

I get ALOT of questions about liquid pearls versus dimensional pearls versus perfect pearls and i see even more questions and confusion out on the boards.  SO I decided to start monthly Product Spotlight segments which will be headed up by catherine  and other members of the playgroup will play along as well.  tomorrow i will kick things of by having an in depth comparison and info on the different options to get a little shimmer going on your projects.  After that we will have LOTS of ideas, techniques and tutorials on the shimmer i carry in the store – perfect pearls, dimensional pearls, liquid pearls and brilliance pearlescent inks.  so i DO hope you check in here often as well as on the other Pezzy Playgroup blogs.  Be sure to let us know your thoughts on our info and tutorials AND if you have any requests for future product spotlights let us know!
