Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #65: Easter

Before I get started, I'd like to invite each of you to come and join me the first Tuesday of each month here at On a Stampage for a technique tutorial and link party!  I'm calling it...TECHNIQUE TUESDAY!  Original, huh?! ;D

I've wanted to start something like this for a while, and now seems as good a time as any!  This monthly tutorial link up will begin tomorrow--so please come back to my little piece of blog land and participate--I LOVE seeing how others use techniques I love! :)

Welcome to another fabulous Crafty Cardmakers challenge!  This week we'd like to see some Easter creations and our hostess is Doreen.

Who are offering a $10 Gift Certificate for their Store to the challenge winner

It is a real honor and pleasure to sponsor this challenge, and we look forward to seeing all the amazing creations. We thank the design team for their incredible creations, and wish all the participants the very best of luck in this challenge.

Thank you so much for having us, and again the very best of luck to all of you.
Judy and Joy.

We are also delighted to be sponsored by Hobby Art with two gorgeous stamps sets as their prize.
We would like to thank them for coming to our rescue at the last minute!

Spring Clear Set

 And now for my card~



I've used a Digi Doodle Shop image called "Spring Time Bunnies."  After coloring it in with blender pens, I crumpled the paper up, semi-flattened it, and sprayed it with gold glimmer mist.  I LOVE how it turned out!

Just a TIP for using digi images--make sure that your ink dries on your cardstock fully before coloring in your images.  Even waiting just 5 minutes after printing them makes a huge difference!!!
Don't forget to check out the other Design Team creations over at Crafty Cardmakers and don't forget to play along with the other fabulous challenges, too!  I can't wait to see what YOU create, too!  Happy stamping! :)

Wonderful card Mynette, what a clever idea to screw it up after colouring it but then still using it. I've done this before now but it has stayed in the bin lol.
Hope you had a great Easter.
