Peyton is Painting Eggs for Easter!

Hello there friends!  Where have I been?  Well, I went off looking for my “MOJO” and he’s doing some disappearing acts on me for sure!  I’m having such a hard time getting motivated and feel that my creative juices have completely dried out!  Do you ever feel this way too?  What are some things you have done to help you?  I will keep trying for now!  LOL!  So sorry for being MIA lately!

Today I must share with you a card I came up with using this really adorable image from Digi Doodle Studios just in time for Easter!

Isn’t he adorable?!  This digital image is called Peyton’s Painted Eggs from DDS and he’s busy at work painting up eggs to get them done in time for Easter!  I’d say he looks like myself getting messy and into the job!  LOL!

After coloring him up, I used a MFT die to cut him out and create the layered frame around him with some purple glitterstock along with some black and white cardstock.  I white heat embossed a sentiment (from Simon Says Stamp) and cut it out with a banner die to go over the image panel.

I took some white ribbon and wrapped it around the corners and attached a bow on the top corner with a flower embellishment in the center…found in my stash.

Also “found in my stash” was the fence and grass dies that I used to attach to the bottom of the card front panel.  Some of the “grass” was placed behind the image panel and some in front of it.  I also attached in the center a strip of the purple glitterstock Lawn Fawn Spring Plaid paper for the front of the card and this was layered over another piece of black cardstock which was mounted over a top folding 5″ square white card base.

Here you can see how I’ve got him all colored up with Copic markers.  He was actually really fun to color up.  My first notion was to make him a white bunny, but I thought he would really stand out if he was brown in color instead.  I added some blades of grass around him with my markers.

I left the egg he was in the process of painting white along with the plain one on the ground…after all, he IS in the process of working on them! LOL!

I’ve only used the white gel pen for his cheeks and  I’ve used a clear metallic gel pen on the paint brush.  The “shinny” areas you see on the “fresh paint” colors are the places that I’ve covered with glossy accents.  The light is naturally highlighting them!

  1. I think your mojo and mine went to the tropic isles for a while, because I have no creative process lately myself!? LOL It happens, but it happens more often for me now unfortunately. Your card doesn’t show any lack of ability, as this is just as sweet as can be. The purple glitter and layers of this cute image make for one seriously cute Easter card! I hope your (our) mojo comes back home for good one day soon 🙂

  3. Cutest, most GORGEOUS Easter Bunny card, EVER! If your MOJO is lost, I’ll take your lost MOJO when your Real MOJO is rediscovered, Vicki. LOL Seriously, this is one beautiful card with those amazing layers and gorgeous papers and textures! You always wow me with the cuteness factor, and yet, your cute cards are never anything less that GORGEOUS. I don’t think it is a “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” thingy. No… I’m certain of it. It’s because your card is GORGEOUS! LOL love ya! de

  4. Have missed you. Glad your Mojo (and you) is (are) back and it doesn’t show on your card that it has left. Great coloring as always!
    Layout and used papers are great too.
    When my Mojo has gone I watch Pinterest and YouTube. When that doesn’t help I read a book or go for a walk.

  15. Greetings Vicki, wow stunning design, color, image and I love the glittery framing.

    To lift my spirits I have taken to baking. With all the crazy panic buying and this weird thing about people hoarding toilet paper.

    Stay well.
