Easter Greetings!

I have such fun memories of Easter Egg hunts from my childhood!  My parents would create a clue driven egg hunt that gave each of the three of us a separate path to find each egg and ultimately the basket.  My father wrote very difficult clues in verse.  The older we got, the more difficult they became.  

This new image from Mo Manning made all those memories come flooding back!  Wish the grandkids lived close enough for me to pass on that tradition for them.

[Note: specific information on supplies and sources will be found below under “Supplies”.]

  • Base card is 5 x 5" top fold
  • Background and the elevated panel to the left of the focal panel are covered with DP from Basic Grey's "Sweet Threads".  These papers have been distressed with a tool and then inked with "Tumbled Glass".
  • Ric-Rack - green with pink, yellow & white polka dots has been secured around the small oblong element which is matted & elevated on foam tape.
  • The focal image has been colored with Copics and I drew designs on each of the eggs with black Micron pen.  This panel is also elevated on foam tape.
  • "Candi" was colored with Copics used in the image and adhered to give the corner more weight.  The watch was heat embossed with gold (wish now I had done that in silver) and the watch face and his teeth were covered with Diamond Glaze for texture.
  • Sentiment is a rubber stamped image that was cut with a small fishtail and curved in a wavy pattern then given support and height with foam tape.
