I am on day 4 of my week of Card Captain with the Michael Strong Stamps Yahoo Group.
I made a card with a die- that cuts out an Easter Egg image.......yep..... I used Watercolors in Yellow and purple and let them run...once dry, I stamped and embossed the egg in White EP. Once I cut them out, I curled the edges and arranged them into the shape of a flower....... So, what kind of flower is this??? An Eggceptional one- it has no scent and does not make me sneeze....
For the stem, I used a scrap of a Glimmer Lace technique (Technique Junkies)- and as you can see- one more egg shape for the leaf.
I layered the flower on a background called Chalked Emboss- I used a pigment called Pan Pastels to sponge color onto the background. There is a great new challenge blog called Unruly PaperArts- there is also an online 'zine' with articles throughout the month....check it out!
The sentiment is a stamp from Unity Stamps- my first time using a Unity stamp.......
