Easter with Ruby's Rainbow

Hi everyone, I hope you're all well. It's time for a new challenge over at Ruby's Rainbow and this time the theme is Easter. Here's my little piece of inspiration for you...

I've used a fab digi from Lacy Sunshine, which can only be found here. I've coloured using copics and Atyou glitter pens. Here's a close up...

I made the backing paper myself using shaving foam and inks. If you've never done this check out the tutorial hereI've displayed the image using a Spellbinder Timeless Rectangle die, extending the black matting by drawing round the outside edge of the die. I've finished off with some ribbon from my stash, a sentiment using another Spellbinder (framed tags one) and an Easter egg embellishment which I've had for years...probably came free with a magazine at some point. I hope you'll pop over to the challenge and have a look what my talented team mates have made for you. You might notice that I've changed my name at Ruby's Rainbow...I'm the crafter formerly known as Ellie Wee....Sadly the other 'Helen' has stepped down from the design team so I'm now using my proper name.

I would like to enter this for the following:-
Lacy Sunshine Challenge 4 - Layer it up 
Make it Monday 
Celebrate the occasion - Happy Easter  
Digital Tuesday Challenge - Easter 
Shopping our stash - Easter/Spring 
Cutie Pie Challenge - Easter 
Pink by design - Easter

Thanks for visiting. May see you again later. Unfortunately my Fibromyalgia has flared today so I'm not sure if I'll manage to get much done. I'm working on a Party Paws's all laid out ready to be assembled but at the moment I have numb fingers...oh well c'est la vie.

Happy crafting
Helen xx
