Happy Easter

Wishing you all a beautiful Easter Day!

My Easter card is created with stamps from Penny Black.  I stamped "candid" with Black Onyx on watercolor paper.  I used a Koh-I-Nor watercolor wheel and waterbrush to color it.  I added a little sparkle with Spica pens: Pink, Blush, Clear, and Mint.
I masked off  "wishing you a very" on the "a very happy Easter" stamp when I inked it so I could stamp just "happy easter".  It's clear embossed.  I added a little more sparkle with Sparkle Shimmer Spritz from Tsukineko.  I wish it showed up in the photo. It has such pretty sparkle!
I used Spellbinders Labels Eleven S4-246 for the shape.  I cut the White Luster and pink mats free hand. 
The card is stamped repeatedly with "paisley swirls" first usingTattered Rose and then overstamped with Spun Sugar.  I love the subtle pattern and soft color! 
I slid my Spun Sugar ink pad over the mesh and embossed it with Silver Pearl.  I wish you could see it's a nice pearl finish.  I fastened it to the left side of the card front and fastened the image over it.  I offset 3 little pearls at the top and bottom.
