Scrap Africa Sketch 14 / Easter

Can you believe that we have made it through January!!! From now on it will be plain sailing...Lol...ja right!!! Well a girl can dream can't she? At least we have our scrapping to make the sailing a little more enjoyable  along the way. And to help get our creative juices flowing, we at Scrap Africa have a new sketch challenge to do just that!

I chose to use only plain card stock for this LO, wanted to keep it soft to honour the photos and sentiments of the Easter photos. These darlings are Francois and Chantelle way back in 1988 gathering hand painted hard-boiled Easter eggs, a life long tradition in our house hold...Although back then it was the Easter Bunny who did all the painting and hiding of eggs, complete with little painted footprints left as evidence of the midnight antics in our kitchen!

The Swirls are from Enmarc Crafts and were just inked with some CHOX from Donna Salazar. Flowers are Prima's Corine Collection and Encore B & C. The butterfly frame is from Prima's Vintage collection.  I embossed the metal corner frame with Stampendous Aged Ivory Embossing Enamel. It was super easy to just heat the metal piece, dip it in into the powder and heat from beneath need for any inks, and there is no flaking at all!

I coloured these Easter eggs from Enmarc with various colours CHOX, then randomly applied UTEE and a final spritz with some Ranger Perfect Peart Mist.

The metal butterfly was also embossed with the Ivory Embossing Enamel and placed on the butterfly image of the Kaizercraft Flutter Stamp.

To prevent the spots on the toadstool also be inked, I applied a little Goosebumps with my finger onto the spots...once dried, I inked and the goosebumps acted as a resits to the inks!

Rangers Sticky Embossing Powder made it super easy to apply Fairydust Glitter to this Prima stamped image! Just stamp with clear embossing ink, apply Sticky powder, heat and immediately sprinkle glitter onto sticky area!!!

This is the sketch to use to play along with this challenge...I hope to see some of you there for remember, there is a super gift pack from our sponsors Fabscraps to be won by a randomly chosen have to be IN it to WIN it!!!

Remember that children, marriages, and flower gardens
 reflect the kind of care they get.
