Easter in the bag

Hi everyone,

In about two weeks it's Easter already. I've done nothing Easter-like. This is my first Easter project of this year. I feel it's been a long time since I have used so many pink and other soft colors. The new Distress Paints are so much fun to play with. Stamping is especially fun, but also making backgrounds with them. Marbleizing is even more fun. With this project I participate with Frilly and Funky and Papertake Weekly. Both challenges are about Easter.


I used a brown paper bag to decorate Easter style and can give it as a gift. The wallpaper background stamp I stamped with Spun Sugar Distress Paint. This is the only paint I really can stamp with and liking the results. The edges I distress with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and created some more texture with different stamps. I really like the Stacked Artful Words die. So I've used the numbers. And colored them with Picket Raspberry and Mustard Seed Distress Paint. The Mini Bunny I painted brown and while the paint was still wet I stamped into it to remove some paint to make some texture.

Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!
