Easter Card

Hi Everyone! I'm starting on my Easter cards already. I try to start early because well, something always comes up and I end up rushing to create the cards!

This card was created using a Penny Black stamp. Isn't it such a cute image! I colored the image using markers with an aquapainter brush on water color paper. I then colored the background using a sponge dauber and stamp pad ink by rubbing the ink to the background.

The designer papers are from Stampin Up and I created the scallop using SU's slit punch.

Not to change the subject but I love watching Indie films and small budget movies and last night my family and I watched "Gone Baby Gone". I have to applaud Ben Affleck for directing his first movie. It was an awesome film. It had lots of twist and turns and Casey Affleck (Ben's brother) did a wonderful job with his character.

I highly recommend this film if you haven't seen it yet. I love the "social dilemma" that this movie addresses. The movie addresses the social dichotomy that we're confronted with regularly in our lives and whether doing the "right" thing is actually the "right" thing in a global sense. Go see it and tell me what you think of the movie!

Be sure to scroll down and check out the RAK I received from Rita!!
