Easter Wishes - The Crafty Pad - #164 Eggtastic!

Hi all you lovely Crafters!

This is my DT card for the challenge starting today at the Crafty Pad Blog.  The theme is Eggtastic and must have eggs, chicken or ducks or anything that makes, creates or comes from an egg! 

Sponsor / Prize -    Crafty Sentiments - 3 digi images of winners choice from their shop

For this DT project I've chosen the Craft Pad digi image Roshell and Friend.

Easter Wishes

The digi images can be either outline drawings without colour or as with this one, already coloured.

I like to 'try' to decoupage flat images to see if I can bring out a 3d effect and this is what I did here. I printed the image 4 times and then carefully cut out the Roshell duck, the hand with the basket, and finally the basket. Using one complete image I made cuts in the paper to allow my scalloped circle die to slide up over the paper, leaving the feet clear of the die and then ran it throught my Big Shot. This way I get the scalloped circle cut around the top of the image and the base stays intact.

Using this image as a base, I placed the different pieces of the decoupage in layers until I got the effect I wanted. The photo doesn't show it well and it can take a bit of tweeking, but the result can be worth it.

The card was made from  5x5 inch Kraft card base covered with complimenting DP and some spotted ribbon from my stash.  My flower is a length of yellow gingham ribbon adhered in folds to circle of card and a second layer of fine yellow organza ribbon for contrast. A final backing of white net and some woven straw completes the flower embellishment.

I am entering this card for the following challenges.

  5. This is adorable! I love it! I had to scroll through several posts though in order to find the card you entered with us. It helps so much if you could link your creation with a direct link and not your blog, when entering challenges. Thanks you for sharing your creativity with us in our “Easter/Spring” challenge at Catch The Bug! We appreciate your creativity! ~~Sammibug~~ DT Member For Bugaboo Stamps
