 Back to the card I made for today's hop. 
I painted a plaid background for the backdrop to my Easter card. This is something anyone can do, trust me! I can not draw a straight line if my life depended on it, but that is not important for this kind of background. 
 The background is an important part of the scene I created for this Easter card. I used Rose Madder, Cadmium Orange and Cadmium Yellow for my background, along with a Zig Gold Pen. I would normally use my Wink of Stella Gold, but I could not find it! Once finished with my plaid, I die cut my piece using Penny Black's Stitched Stackers Die and attached to my card base.
 Using Poppy Stamps To All My Peeps and a couple of older dies from Memory Box and MFT and again using the palette of paint colours, I stamped and painted my images, then cut them out. I die cut a piece of  36lb vellum and attached using my Vellum tape. I styled my pieces then arranged my scene, gluing some pieces and using foam squares on other pieces. I stamped the sentiment with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder, attaching with foam squares.
To finish I added clear Wink of Stella to the flowers, the bottom of the clouds, bunny ears and the noses of the birds, along with all of the decorated eggs. Following is the video on this card, as well as affiliate links to the product I have used.
I had great fun making this card, and hope you have enjoyed it. Now on to Susan's blog. If you have lost your way, following are the links to all those participating in today's hop. Enjoy!
