Basically, this is what happens when you put two different holidays into a Cuisinart and hit "Puree."
I received my latest order from Stampotique just this afternoon, and had to get this baby put together FAST in order to submit it for their Easter Designers' Challenge. Whew! I think I broke a sweat, and I know I broke a nail. No matter, I love these off-kilter kids (Smile and Marci), and don't they totally look like they're nearly hyperventilating in anticipation of the Easter Bunny? I get it. That's how I feel about chocolate, too.
I colored the kids with Mark-Its, stamped "candy!' repeatedly with letter stamps and blended Bundled Sage Distress Ink around the perimeter. Two completely contradictory decorative papers were layered underneath, and the "bunny better hurry" scrap was colored with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.
Oh, and see that blingy little button in the top right-hand corner, perched on the paper flower? That's FLAIR, baby (if you saw the movie "Office Space," you're probably laughing right now). It's from a new embellishment set by Dear Lizzy/American Crafts, which I was lucky enough to win from Simon Says Stamps a few weeks ago! I know-- how generous is that?? I love SSS, they're awesome folks, and are always doing giveaways and posting great ideas. They didn't ask for a plug. but they get one anyway because they're so lovely!
And on that note, it's bedtime for this girl. The caffeine has worn off, Bowie the cat is snoring on top of my desk, and I wish you all sweet dreams (day and night!).
