Pierced Easter Lilies

Happy Thursday!

Aren't these new images just terrific? They are so perfect for Easter. This is also for the Crazy 4 Challenges, C4C27 which is being sponsored by DRS this week.

The Easter Oval was stamped onto water color paper and I colored it using markers and a water brush. The oval itself was cut using a lg. petite oval Nestie and a little technique I call Out of the Box Nestie. I did an extra of the lilies, cut them out and attached them on top for a little dimension. It's attached to a petite scallop oval lg, then to a petite oval sm. layer.

The background was a leftover piece of DTP (direct to paper). It's just a piece of white c/s with pink, yellow and yellow/orange ink pads smooshed all over it. I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder on it, then used the embossed flowers as a guide for my piercing. A wavy pierced border was also added.

The sentiment was stamped on c/s, colored with a marker then attached to a piece of satin ribbon I also colored w/ a marker. I never have the exact color of ribbon. But I do have lots of white ribbons and plenty of markers, so I guess I have the right color of ribbon after all! The little buckle is a die cut.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Please check out the DRS new releases, they're fabulous!
