Nature Walk Easter

Hi! I'm back with another Nature Walk card. I think I'm finally starting to get into this set. I wanted to do an easter card with the eggs from the set. I think it came out pretty cute. Of course its another vintage card. I feel like I can only do vintage and distressed with this set. Maybe i'll make that a challenge to NOT do any of that on the next card I do with this set. We'll see :) I started off with an Early Espresso based that I stamped with the music notes wheel (it's a little hard to see it in the photo). I then sprayed some Log Cabin smooch spritz on top of it. I think I went a little too heavy with it because it covered up a lot of the music notes. But it does have a pretty cool shimmer to it. Then while my music notes wheel was still a little dirty I ran it over the watercolor piece to give it a little something extra. Oh and the edges of all the pieces are sponged with Early Espresso. I then stamped the eggs 2 times on the watercolor paper in Early Espresso. I colored in the eggs with various inks and a blender pen. I like that the early espresso ink blended a little bit as I was coloring in the eggs. I then added some lace and tafetta ribbon. I saw this online and thought it was really cool to layer both of these ribbons. I used a large brown button I had and then added 2 little tags that say Happy Easter. I think I should have stamped them a little further down on the tag since part of the words are covered a bit by the button. But you get the idea. Or maybe next time I would add the sentiment under the eggs. Hmm I don't know which I would like better?? Well that's it for me today. I hope to work on some more cards tonight but I don't know. I'm trying to get back into some sort of working out and they offer classes at work. So I'm hoping to have the energy to go after work. And then I will probably be wiped out after that to do anything else for the evening, lol! Or maybe I will get my second wind! Have a nice day!


  1. I love the way the eggs came out. Beautifully done.

  2. Great card. I wanted to tell you that I love the new font your are using on your blog, it looks really good.

  3. This is just beautiful- I have been looking for a good design using these cute eggs and finally discovered your card on SCS. Thanks for sharing!
