Eggs 4 Easter!

Hi everyone!

It’s Saturday which means it is time for another challenge with my “Crazy” friends over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog.

This week Robin Willis our challenge hostess for February challenged us to create a card/project using red as the main color.

Our sponsor for this week is The Stamps of Life by Stephanie Barnard.

Each of the “Crazies” were able to select one of Stephanie’s digi stamps to create our card. I picked the Eggs4Easter set. The fun thing about these digi stamps is not only do you get the jpg files for each image, but you also get the abr files which are Photoshop brushes. So I decided to play around with the brushes to create my design and I had so much fun playing with these …. I do love brushes!!!!!!!

Everything but the sky and the color yellow were done on the computer using photoshop elements and the brushes …. I added the last two things after printing off my images.

The layout of my first card uses Mercy’s Tuesday Sketch challenge MTSC60.

 As you can see I couldn’t just create one card for this challenge, I was having that much fun with these images and the brushes. The layout of this card is another of Mercy’s Tuesdays Sketch Challenges (MTSC59). I think I am addicted to her sketches hehe!

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.
