Serendipity Blog Challenge - February 8, 2012 - Easter Basket

Hi and welcome to the Serendipity Stamps Easter Blog Hop!  Easter is always one of my favorite times of year because it means winter is over and life is renewed to my part of the world.  I am ready for the celebration of spring and longing for all the plants and flowers in my yard.  

The card  I made today features the Judy's Easter Basket set.  I started by stamping the basket image with Momento Rich Cocoa - I think this enhances the natural colors of the basket image better than black would.  Next I colored the image with Copic markers.  I then took a glue pen and carefully drew over the dots and stripes on the eggs in the basket, and added lots of colorful glitter.
I made a post bow with a double layer of seam binding, topped that with a twine post bow, and then topped that with a sweet pearl embellished brad.

I hope you'll check out the other designs the Serendipity design team members came up with!  What a great way to get a jump start on your Easter cards!   Just click on the ladies names below to view their blogs!

What a good job you did coloring this basket Jeanne, it looks so realistic and love all the sparkle on the eggs. I especially like the bow with the twine looped on top of it, very creative.
