Argyle Easter Eggs with Two Paper Divas

 There's a whole lot going on over at Two Paper Divas Stamps,  but let me start by sharing this project that features one of the new March Releases, "It's All About the Egg".  I believe there's around 10 new stamp sets that were recently released.  That's incredible!  Melissa and Gayla are busy bees and designing some fabulous products that I am more than happy to play with and share! 

There are 6 different eggs in this stamp set and today I have chosen to highlight this pretty argyle or harlequin style egg.  I started by creating my own background on watercolor paper, using 3 different TH distress ink sprays and spritzing with water on watercolor paper.  When dry, I took a paper towel, scrunched it up and dabbed it into white pigment ink, then dabbed it all over my card.  Next, I used a TCW stencil and sponged on Powder Puff chalk ink.  Kind of makes me think of bunny tails! 

To stamp my eggs, I first stamped in a lavender ink, then re-stamped over my same image with white pigment ink.  I added some diamond Stickles glitter glue as well.  The finishing touches were the sentiment, also from TPD, called "Wishing You a Happy Easter", heat embossed onto vellum with white pigment ink and clear embossing powder.  A pretty ombre bow from The Ribbon Resource rounds out this card.

 Visit the Two Paper Divas Blog for daily project inspiration and on Wednesdays for the Design Team Roundup.  Check out the new March release right here:
