Today is my first post as one of the new DT members for A Gem of a Challenge, and I am tickled half to death to be here! The prize for the lucky winner will be 2 Individual Digi images of the winner's choice from PINK GEM DESIGNS (Subject to Availability).....
Our challenge this week, as chosen by Donna, is Holidays, which can mean any holiday of the year, and you have until 6:00 pm Feb. 1 to enter.
I chose Easter. The stamp is "Easter Chicks," which you can find here, and I have colored them with Copics.
I've colored their background with chalks, using a scallop circle die cut as a mask for the clouds. The two background papers were made using the emboss resist technique with slightly different stamps for each panel.
The flowers are sparkly using Liquid Pearls as their centers. There is the teensiest little rhinestone on the girly chick's bow.
I've used some lavender seam binding for the bow and a button with pearl for the center, plus I added one of my smaller stick pins which I made specifically for this card. A couple of additional pearls complete this little Easter card.
Thank you so much for joining me today, and I appreciate any and all comments. And please do stop by A Gem of a Challenge and play along. We'd love to see you there!
