Easter Egg Easel

Happy Thursday!
This past weekend the Twisted Thursday Challenge group at The Outlawz announced some changes to their Thursday challenges.
The changes to the challenges are -
~ Twisted Thursday is now open medium. What this means is we have lifted the twist of only being able to use 50% alcohol markers. You may now use them as much as you like. Of course we would still love to see all the other coloring mediums such as the prisma pencil. We just want you to be able to use what ever you are comfortable coloring with.
~ If you enter one or more cards/projects for the month, you will receive a free digi stamp from Anne’s Digital Art. This digi is exclusive to the Twisted Thursday Challenges.
~ All of the challenges will now be Anything Goes. However, we will be adding a twist to the Anything Goes as an option for you to do. If you add the twist to your card/project, your name will be entered twice in the drawing for the monthly Twisted Thursday prize.
~ iCopic is now sponsoring the Twisted Thursday challenges with a $10.00 GC an a monthly prize. And if you place an order over $75.00 you will receive $5.00 off and free shipping. (Free shipping is for US Orders only).
Be sure to check out the new challenge and to find out how to get the $5.00 off and free shipping with your iCopic orders.

I know we are very excited about the changes and hope you will be too! The changes take effect today with this weeks challenge so let me tell you what our twist is for the Anything Goes this week- it is Easter.  

I included the twist in my sample to share with you. I have seen several Easter egg easel cards in blogland and wanted to give one a try so this was the perfect challenge twist for me to do that with and I knew it would also go well with this weeks iCopic challenge too! 

I used one of my Magnolia stamps. I just love this Tilda hugging the bunny! I colored the image with copics - E000, E00, E11, E51, E53, E57/R00, R01, R02, R30/G20, G40, G43/YG61, N0, N01.
Here a picture of the easel closed -
The pattern papers are MME Miss Carolina. I used the larges oval from Spellbinders Grand Ovals for the base of the egg, which I found at 7kids College Fund.
I added stickles to Tilda's wings, bow and the trim on her shirt. I used a clear glitter pen and a nija waterbrush to add sparkle to her socks and the bunny's belly. The Flowers are a combination of Wild Orchid Crafts and Prima roses.

Card Supplies:
Stamps: Magnolia - Tilda with Bunny
Ink: Memento,
Paper: SU, Copic Blending, Bazzill, MME - Miss Carolina
Other: Copics, Prima Roses, WOC Roses, MS Border Punch & Leaf Punch, Ribbon,Stickles, Glitter Pen, Spellbinders - Circles, Grand Ovals

I am also entering my card in the following Challenges -
7kids College Fund - Shades of Spring
iCopic - a project for a child or using a child stamp and colored with Copics
Make It Monday - Anything Goes 

I hope you will come check out the challenge and play along with us. You do not have to add the twist to your project if you do not want to but if you do your name will be entered twice in the TT only prize.
Thank you for stopping by!
