Pollycraft Challenge - Monday 11 April 2011

Over at the Pollycraft Challenge the topic this week is Easter.  I was checking through my box of pre-coloured images ie ones I coloured some time ago and came across these chicks from Pollycraft so I thought they'd be perfect for the Easter challenge.  I have coloured the image in with Promarkers, Sakura Stardust clear pen and chalks.  I then die-cut the image and cut a shape out with my Cricut.  I have used two gorgeous Basic Grey papers and because of the quality of these paper they were perfect for using Tim Holtz's distressing tool on and then inking the edges.  The plain orange/yellow paper I have used the same mango chalk ink pad that I used to distress to stamp from V&A flowers in the corner.  All the papers/card have had the edges inked.  The card is finished off with two different ribbons, East egg peel-offs and an Easter brad embellishment.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:

This is so cute and goes beautifully with your Basic Grey papers. They are one of my favourite ranges of paper both for quality and style.

You know I am gonna have to go off and Google 'Tim Holtz Distressing Tool' now to see what I might be missing! Although I have a set of files made by Basic Grey which I use, and they double as files for the Puppy's claws too!

Thanks for joining in with our Easter challenge at Dream Valley.
