Today I have another Easter card to share with you. For the focal point I used one of the beautiful images from the NEW Crafty Secrets Easter Creative Scraps. You are going to love these!! The images are absolutely amazing!! I used the Curved Rectangles S5-006 die template from Spellbinders to cut out the image of the angels and flowers from the Easter Creative Scraps. Then I used the next larger size of the same die template to cut out a mat of Petallics Juniper Berry from WorldWin to create a mat behind the image. I used two different colors of Glimmer Mist, Pearl and Snow Angel from Tattered Angels on the angel image. The Snow Angel Glimmer Mist is a very light pink with a pearl shimmer. While the image was drying then I punched out two birds using a Martha Stewart punch. I used the Copic Airbrush System and Sketch Marker B00 Frost Blue to lightly airbrush a little blue on the birds. Then I took a cotton ball with Distress Ink Vintage Photo and added a little ink to the edges and then I misted them with Pearl Glimmer Mist.Next I inked the Prima Hydrangea flowers with Snow Cap, Ranger Adirondack Ink and a cotton ball. Then I added just a tiny bit of Really Rust ink from Stampin' Up to the edges of the petals using a q-tip and then I went back over the flowers with the Snow Cap ink to soften up the Really Rust color. After the ink was dry then I misted the flowers with Pearl Glimmer Mist. When the flower petals were all dry then I put the flower together using glue dot and I added a pearl and gold button the to center. I also punched out some "fern leaves" from Petallics Spring Larch and Beargrass cardstock from WorldWin using the Martha Stewart Twig Punch and added them behind the flower.Here is a picture showing the before and after of the flower.For the beautiful gold filigree corners I used the corner stamp from Crafty Secrets Serenity Prayer Stamp Set. I stamped the images using gold pigment ink and then embossed them with gold EP. I also added some gold brads in the corners of the diecut and a few pearls in the corners of the card. The background paper is from Crafty Secrets Pastel Designer Paper Pad.
