OCCC Easter

Happy Saturday!!! Easter is only a week away! Our April host for Our Creative Corner, Silke, has challenged us to use our *favorite* Easter Stamp Set. So simple except I thought I had no Easter sets. So I called a friend who, I think, knows my stamp inventory better than I do and I panicked on the phone. She reminded me of the couple of sets that I own that can be used for Easter. Thank-you Yvonne!!!

I wanted to do a monochromatic card for my Easter card, because where I am, this is what Easter looks like. There is rarely green at this time of year. Often there is a heavy snowfall forecast. Occasionally, crocuses poke up through the ground, but not often. I think this turned out to be quite elegant in white and ivory.

I stamped the main image with old paper distress ink and coloured it in a bit with copic markers. This was a card I struggled with to get the right feel without going too dark.

This week at OCC, we want to welcome our Guest Designer Jeanette Fincher!!! Jeanette is the owner of 2RedBananas and she is generously donating this beautiful Stamp Set!!! In order to win this Set you have to upload your card to your blog or gallery and leave a link there so we can see what you made! To be included in a random drawing for the 2RedBananas Stamp Set, please have your card linked there by 12 noon on Friday, April 10th. If you upload to Splitcoast, please include OCCC in the keywords. The winner will be announced Saturday, April 11th.

Take a minute and check out what all the other design team members did with this Easter challenge! Links are provided on the left side of my blog.

Enjoy your weekend!
