ODBD February Release Look Back!

Pastel Easter Egg cu 08401
Today we are taking a look back at the Our Daily Bread designs February Release! I’m featuring the big, beautiful Boho Egg dies in both of my cards. 

Pastel Easter Egg 08402
The idea for this card came last week when a Splitcoast challenge wanted us to use Washi tape. I have a few rolls of it & until this card, I hadn’t even opened the package. The colors of tapes were pastel & thought they went well w/ the Pastel Paper pack. I covered a piece of card stock w/ strips of the pastel Washi tape on the diagonal then die cut the large egg background. I used more of the tape to cover the largest layer which was die cut w/ the Flourished Star Pattern die. The Boho egg topper was cut out of lilac & the mint frame, polka dot bg , all the little flowers & bow are all from the Pastel paper pack.

I added some dots of pearl pen all around the egg & in the centers of the flowers then added the Easter word at the bottom.

For this card, I stamped the Easter Egg Background w/ white pigment ink onto water color paper then heat embossed it w/ white powder. I used the Distress stains to dab color over the background then a wet paint brush to move the color.

I only used the topper for the Boho Egg in order to let the colors show through & I added a Medium Bow on top & the full Happy Easter die cut greeting below. 

Here’s the inside using a few of the Easter Egg die cuts.
