Edwin's Easter Egg Hunt

Happy Wednesday Stampers,

This is my 2nd DT card for Magnolia. I must admit I am a tad nervous being such a newbie on the team and I don't make a lot of boy cards, but anyways, as all you Magnolia Lovers know, Magnolia is about to release some fabulous new Easter Stamps - the Hoppy Easter Collection - this is Edwin with Egg Basket & Rooster from the new collection.

These like so many of Magnolia stamps can be used for other occasions not just Easter. I have also used the sentiment stamp called Squiggly Happy Easter from Magnolia's Easter 2009 Collection. I hope you like what I came up with.

I coloured Edwin, his basket and the roosters tail feathers a couple of times to give them a little dimension, I also added a few real feathers. I couldn't help myself with some flowers. I have coloured with Copics, inked the edges with Distress Ink (pine needles) all papers, stamps, feathers, & ribbon from DT Kit supplied by Magnolia. I glossed up the Rooster's Feet and wobbly red bits with some Diamond Glaze. (sorry but not sure what they are called lol) Added a few gems & pearls with a some stickles to look like Easter Eggs on the ground, Edwin is on an Easter Egg Hunt after all.
