Pastel Houndstooth Sketch

I loved Jen Mitchell's simple sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this many possibilities!

I was inspired by Laura Bassen's lovely pastel blended Easter egg background that she posted HERE for SSS today, so I created an Easter card, too!

I stamped the Houndstooth Backgrounder from Cornish Heritage Farms in Versamark on white paper, then clear embossed it.  I ink blended using the emboss resist technique with Tim Holtz Distress inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Spun Sugar, and Tumbled Glass.  For the bottom sketch panel, I used a bit of vellum because I didn't want to cover up those pretty colors!

I stamped the eggs from a Waltzingmouse Stamps set called "Nestie Eggs" and cut them with the "Nested Eggs" Nestabilities.  The banner is from a different WMS set called "A Good Egg," and the little bunny is cut using a Memory Box die :)!

Some little pearls, Glossy Accents, iridescent sequins and teeny Memory Box flowers for the bunny's collar :).

This picture is a little more "true" color-wise, it's really light and airy in real life!  Always inspired by Laura Bassen's techiques, cards, and her fun videos :)!

Thanks for stopping by!
