Easter chicks

Another quick recycling project, this time using an old lid from what I planned would be a paper box filled with chocolate I could give away for Easter. Once it was done, I didn't quite like the outcome, so I proceeded to demolish everything. However, I did my best with saving the cover as I thought I could use it for something else. 
After many considerations, I decided to place the finished lid on a plain white card base to create a rather simple Easter/spring card. Apart from that, there isn't much to say about the project itself: the cute Sarah Kay image is coloured with coloured pencils in brown-ish shades that I thought would match the chocolate treasure inside the box. 
Once the colouring was done, I placed the motif on a brown background paper which I upcycled with a border punch. Then, I glued everything on a shimmering white background paper with a floral pattern, and placed a couple of rhinestones on the blooms. 
A little contribution to the April collection of Create in Austria - artwork created by Austrians and/or in Austria.

And as the post is a rather short one, plus to complete the Easter theme for this year, I'll finish off by adding a snap of beautifully scratched eggs from the Easter egg exhibition at Ljubljana castle.

  7. I love your project for its simple elegance. I just recently pull out all my old Sarah Kay Stamps to make a card set for a wonderful teacher. Your project has reminded me that they need very little embellishment, just beautiful coloring and presentation. Thanks for sharing this wonderful image with us at 613 Avenue Create!

  9. Tvoja deklica je dolgo časa nazaj krasila mojo posteljnino - hvala, ker si mi s svojo očarljivo voščilnico pričarala otroške spomine. Tvoja jajčka pa - še en čudovit projekt.
