Impression Obsession Challenge

The Impression Obsession challenge this week is to make a card for Easter. You can find the challenge HERE.

I have a couple of fantastic Cover a Card stamps from IO and wanted to use them on this card. I don't have any Easter stamps from IO so I was a little bit more spring like in my approach.

I went on line and looked for some Easter quotes and found this lovely one from Alice Palmer. I like the idea of life, love and peace being re-born as I think of Easter and spring as being like that.

The background on the green is stamped using the new Ranger Distress Ink Crushed Olive and uses the IO stamp Tapestry 2. It is a very pretty flowery background.

The second IO stamp I used was the Greenery stamp on the background of the words. I stamped that using the Pear Tart color from Memento.

The last stamp I used from IO was the birds and they are stamped using the versafine vintage sepia and kissed onto the tapestry stamp.

The punches are all EK success.

Well off to clean the house... ARGH! I hope you have a lovely Saturday and lovely weekend. I have a post lined up for tomorrow which I think is really cute.
