Eggs in my Easter Bucket

Too early for Easter?  I think a little breath of spring is always good in those cold January days.  I know I'll be looking for those warm days coming!


This was an extra card I had made for the December Release at There She Goes.  Isn't that little bucket of Easter eggs darling?  It's from the Buckets of Love set.  I colored it all up with Copics, then re-stamped the eggs, cutting one out and adding it outside the bucket.  I sponged up the sky with Soft Sky ink and paired it with some old Basic Grey papers (Urban Prairie), adding the grass fringe with my scissors along the bottom.  The clouds are from PTI, I just love their shape and I sponged them just lightly along the bottoms.  It gives the clouds a little more depth.


Recipe:  Stamps:  There She Goes - Buckets of Love;  Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Soft Sky;  Paper:  Certainly Celery, Soft Sky, Flourishes Classic White, Basic Grey Urban Prairie DSP;  Accessories:  Big Shot, PTI Clouds Die, Soft Sky DS Ribbon, Dimensionals, Scissors, Scor Tape.  Copic Markers.
