This week's theme at Crafty Cardmakers has been piced by Doreen, who has chosen Easter. So what we'd like to see from everyone is something - cards, tags, bookmarks, hats, baskets, anything - as long as it has an Easter theme. We are being sponsored this week by the Digi Doodle Shop who are offering a $10 gift certificate and also Hobby Art who are offering two fab stamp sets.
I decided to make a pillow box out of parchment to fill with little yummy chocolate eggs to send to a friend. I used a template from Palm Tree Parchment Craft for the box. The gridwork pattern was made uisng a small straight grid and took ages!!! The centre design is by Anneke Oostmeijer and is from Parchment Craft Magazine May 2009. I drew the design with white gel pen and then coloured with a combination of Whispers pens and Derwent Studio Pencils, adding embossing and some more gridwork (small diagonal grid) to one of the Eaaster eggs.
I'd like to enter my box into the following Challenges:
Paper Sundaes - Happy Easter

Paper Play - Easter
Top Tip Tuesday - Easter (top tip - do your central decoration before the gridwork so you don't smudge your work)
