Over The Moon Monday - Color Challenge

Good morning! I hope you are enjoying your Monday. Which means it's time for another Over The Moon Monday challenge. Spring is in the air, and the mental image I get with spring are easter eggs, bunnies and grass. So for today's challenge, I have chosen pastel colors.

This was a very easy card to make. I took a cuttlebug embossing folder and smooshed brilliance ink in coral on the inside. Then I inserted white cardstock and ran it through the cuttlebug. That gave it a pretty pastel color with white diamonds. But the diamonds looked pretty bland, so I took a brilliance inkpad in peacock (3 shades), and lightly ran it over the diamonds. Part of it got onto the coral part, but that was okay, I wasn't going for a crisp look anyway. And it's very shimmery in real life.

I then stamped the easter egg from My Paper Moon onto glossy cardstock with pastel colors (the orange egg isn't as orange in real life). I stamped the eggs again and cut them out and used pop dots to adhere them to the stamped eggs on the glossy cardstock. I mounted this on yellow cardstock. Then I took a piece of pink cardstock and ran it through the cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder. I mounted this on the background, then mounted the eggs on top.

I hope you are enjoying the challenges and will post a link to your creation back here so we can all enjoy your talent.

I told you last week that I would choose a winner from the links in the comments. I'm sad to say there was only 1 entry, but happy that Laura O'Donnell won a prize. I'll get that in the mail to Laura this week.

Now, go do something crafty!
