Dream Valley Challenge 5 - Easter


It's time for another challenge over at Dream Valley. This time the challenge is all about Easter and we've been sponsored by Stitchy Bear. The DT were given some fab images to play with. The image I've used is Easter Egg Lillie and you can find her here.

I coloured her with promarkers and layered up the egg to give a more 3D effect. I cut it out with my nesties and sponged ink through the die to give the grass and sky effect. Oodles of glitter glue - can you see it? I never seem to get it across in my piccies very well!!!!

I used:
Promarkers, glitter glue
Papers - Pink Petticoat,Vintage Rose
Letter stickers - Yellow Moon
Sentiment stamp - Daisy and Dandelion
Border punch - Leafy lace, Xcut
Gems - stash

Sketch 'n' stash - Fab sketch, new stash: image and papers, neglected stash: letter stickers
A spoon full of sugar - All creatures great and small
CRAFT - Easter

Now, I know I've not been around much this past week. I hope you'll forgive me! It's the Easter hols and my little cherubs are at home so I'm spending a lot of my time at the park keeping them entertained :-) I'm afraid it's likely to be the same next week too, so please bear with me. But I still have cards that need making and they'll all need to go on my blog at some point so do keep your eyes peeled :-)

I've also been keeping my family out of mischief on my allotment..... If you want to see what we've been up to, please pop along and have a look at my allotment blog. Check out the early piccies. Such a change!

Better be off. Things to do! Such a busy girl :-)

Love 'n' hugs,

So sweet! I really like how you did the sky and grass - no blotches at all, unlike my efforts, which always go to feed Mr Wastepaperbin! Great job!

luv, Mags x

Gorgeous design, love the colouring.

How nice to see those papermania letter stickers being used, it reminds me of all the stash I have stashed that never gets used. Good intentions never related to actual doing!
