Easet Chicks

Hello my darling friends. I hope you had lovely Easter. Right now I wish this long weekend would be longer. We had so nice weather - sun was shining and it was so warm - it felt almost like summer. It's great to see  tiny leaves on the trees and I even saw one yellow wood anemone blooming. Very unusual for April :)

Here is one simple Easter card.The image is from paper napkin. I placed the napkin to the sticker paper, covered it with Versamark Ink, poured Stickum Powder on top and melted the powder with heat tool. Then I covered it with Cloud Nine Microfine Velvet Glitter. And that was it. It's really easy to get a sparkling card front. 

Orange matting layer is covered with Tiger Orange Microfine Glitter. Green, yellow and light blue layers are all punched with Doily Lace Edge Punch, covered with Versamark Ink and then with different embossing powders (Spring Willow, Dandy Dandelion and Skylight) 

One little chick is fussy cut and adhered with a foam tape on top. 
You can find full directions how to make this card from SNS Gallery.

Embossing Powders: Stickum Powder (EP300), Spring Willow (EP388), Dandy Dandelion (EP178), Skylight (EP212)
