The daffodils are out,
the crocus and hyacinth
bulbs bursting forth, birds
singing their little heads

Here is an Easter Card for you
today from Angela Radford
"Hi all I'm here to show you how
I've made this Easter card using one
of the Jofy stamps Jofy53 by Paper Artsy.
As you can see I have only stamped
the flower section of this stamp and
not the stem.
I used Versafine Black Archival and
then embossed with clear powder.
I know they are not meant to be eggs
but I'm sure you'll agree they do look
I coloured these with brush tip
ink pens and added highlights
with a white pen
Before completing this card I splattered
Distress ink onto the card blank.
Just smooth some ink onto a craft mat
and add a little water then use a brush
to flick it onto the card.
I played around with the eggs and
decided to use just three and
also added the little birds from
Kim Dellow stamp EKD02 stamping a
little towards the back of the card.
I coloured these yellow so they looked
like little chicks.
The background was made by applying
Distress Oxides straight to the card ,
one colour at a time, spritz, drip and dry.
The large sentiment stamp is by
Woodware and the Easter text is one
from my stash.
I stamped around the edge with a
stamp from a Lin Brown set ELB33 and
completed the card with a few coloured sequins.
The lines around the edge were drawn
free hand with a black felt tip pen and
that's it, all done.
Have a lovely Easter, Angela xXx"
And you have a lovely Easter too
Angela. Thank you for the
beautiful card too.
So bright a colourful - really brings a
smile don't you think?
Of course, if you don't celebrate
Easter then this card could be used
for any other celebration - just use
the "eggs" the other way up and
they become Balloons!
Finally add a greeting appropriate
to the occasion.
I'll leave you with that
