PaperCutz Challenge #86

It's Friday again!  We continue with an Easter theme this week as your Papercutz challenge is to make a card using any colors you'd like to make a project using a hand stamped, digi stamped or die cut image of a lamb, chick, bunny or Easter eggs.  I made a card with a chick last week, so this week I went with eggs.

I made a tag this week starting with white paper I sprayed with Fully Purple Glimmer Mist.  I then used an EF from Cuttlebug's Lotus Blossom set.  After I dry embossed it, I gently rubbed Versamark over the raised images and heat embossed with Stampendous Lavender Pastel EP.  I also heat embossed the greeting using Inkadinkado stamps and Ranger purple EP.  I layered the 2 papers and lace and added the eggs and flowers.
The egg stamp is from Michael Strong which I stamped in Versamark and then used polished pigments and a paint brush to rub on the colors.  Unfortunately, my camera hates me these days, so the vibrant colors aren't really showing through.  I finished up the eggs with Stickles for more shine!  The color combination of purple, pink and green is actually quite lovely.  This tag is definitely a departure from my usual "style", but I do like it, there is lots of color and texture and will look great on my DH's Easter present.


  1. VERY pretty, Penny! I love the idea of dry embossing & then heat embossing on top of that! I'll have to try it. Beautiful pastel colors! TFS

  2. Beautifully created! When I saw the photo of this on the the blog reader, I knew I just had to comment and let you know I'm impressed!!!
