Easter Eggs Card with Anthony's Paper Craft

Hello everyone!  TGIF!!  I hope you guys had an awesome week.  I am looking forward to the weekend.  Last Sunday we fell back 1 hour so now it gets darker earlier.  And the neighbor next door has a new puppy that loves to start barking at 5am.  To say that I  am not a happy camper would be an understatement!!  At least making art keeps me sane!  LOL

I take part in a card swapping group on Facebook and one of the cards I need to make this month is an Easter card.  I came up with this super easy card.  

I started with a piece of white cardstock that I die cut using a stitched rectangle die.  Next, I randomly stamped the eggs from Easter Set 2 (Anthony's Paper Craft) with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  

Then I colored in the eggs using only pastel colored BIC markers (Margarita Green, Pink Flamingo, Peach Parfait, Polynesian Purple, Lime Sorbet, Oceanview Blue, Petal Pink, Turquoise Teal and Yellow Blaze).

I found a Martha Stewart pastel paper pad in my stash and I adhered a piece of the purple to the front of my top folding A2 card base.  Then I adhered a piece of piece of white fun foam behind the eggs, which I then adhered to the card front.  

Of course, it was at this point that I realized that I had forgotten to stamp the sentiment.  UGH!  So I placed the card into my Misti and prayed that I could stamp the sentiment without screwing up the whole card.  I used the sentiment "Happy Easter" from Easter Set 1 (Anthony's Paper Craft) but this time I used Onyx Black Versafine ink.  I stamped it twice and it came out perfect!!  

To finish the card I added Stickles (Ranger) on each of the eggs to give it a bit of shimmer.  


As I said, super easy card to make.  The only time-consuming thing is the coloring but you guys know I love to color.  Here is the final card.

I hope you guys enjoyed this card.  Feel free to leave a comment below!  I am off to make a few more Easter cards.  Until next time -
