Sweet Pea Stamps Variation Week

This week is Variations Week at Sweet Pea Stamps. Our image is the beautiful “Easter Blessing” and it was designed by Katerina Koukiotis. You can find Easter Blessing in digital format or as a rubber stamp.

Easter Blessing was a joy to color with Copics. I have tried to go with a distressed look, but I still like my image and colors to pop.

Copics used:
Skin: E000, 00, 04, 11, 21, and R20
Hair: Y21, 26, YR24, E29, 37, 39, 50
Dress: R81, 83, 85, 89
Wings: R81, 83, and blender
Dove: C0, 3

My layering cardstock is Stampin’ Up!’s Bravo Burgundy and Always Artichoke. The designer paper is from Heartfelt Creations, but I have no idea which collection.

After all the distressing was done, and my layers were assembled, I added some vintage cotton tatting from my stash. The flowers are from Petaloo and Prima. I’ve had the charm lying around for a while and decided it would be perfect for this card.

I would like to enter Easter Blessing in the following challenges:
Craft for the Craic – Something for Easter or spring
Daring Cardmakers – Another Dimension
4 Krafty Girlz – Anything goes
Through the Craftroom Door – Anything Goes
