Control Freaks March Spring/Easter Blog Tour

Hello, Stampers!


Welcome to the March Tour de Freaks
Spring/Easter Blog Tour! 

Spring begins tomorrow, but the Crontrol Freaks are
ready to share with you TODAY!

Be sure visit all the blogs for TONS of Spring/Easter inspiration!
Whether you are coming from Kelly's blog 
or just starting out, there is something for everyone!

This card was a bit of an experiment for me. I had seen a technique
that mod-podged a piece of waxed paper to a card panel. Once
dried, it was embossed thru the Big Shot and rubbed with acrylic paint and 
sponged with different shades of ink. Well, here is my result. A little different, 
but I'm not really sure how I feel about it. 


This second project is an altered speckled egg I found at my
local discount store. Coincidentally, it matches 
our Basic Black and Mint Macaron colors to a tee! SCORE!
It makes a great Easter table decoraion with the addition of the Botanical
Builer Frameltis and Basic Black/Mint Macaron Baker's Twine!
