Egg shaped Easter card by Tim Holtz

Hello everybody, it's Monika again!

I'm trying to make a few Easter cards before the holiday, so here is one of them.

And here is my step by step tutorial.

I cut out a large egg shaped card with Sizzix die from kraft paper.

Then a one size smaller from watercolour paper.

With white ink I stamped Tim's wildflowers onto the watercolour paper and sprinkled with white embossing powder. 

With my heat tool I melted the embossing powder then I started to colour the egg with Distress inks and a sponge.

I spritzed with water and white the edge with Picked Fence paint.

From watercolour paper I cut out the butterflies with Tim's Sizzlits die and coloured with Distress markers. Then with a wet brush I blended the colours.

I'm sorry, I forgot to take pictures about the rabbit.  But first of all, I have to tell you that it was a wood mounted stamp before. But since I got my Misti Stamping tool I have transformed all my wood mounted stamp into a cling mounted stamp :-) So in this case I used my Misti and I stamped Tim's rabbit with Archival ink (Potting Soil) and after I put and melted clear embossing powder on it. I coloured with Distress markers.

I glued all the elements and then added chit chat stickers.

What I used:

kraft paper

watercolour paper
