Easter Treasure Hunt

Every year on Easter I like to design a little egg hunt game for my boys. No exception this year. This year I felt they are old enough to learn how to read a treasure map. To make the paper looks aged, I teared off all edges and applied distress ink old paper + vintage photo. I hid eggs all over the house. There are 10 eggs that have a symbol in it and they are hidden in locations depicted on the map. Whoever finds all 5 unique symbol can get a mystery bag of goodies! My kids got crazy about this game.

Under the Sea

I'm obsessed with water secene lately. In this card, I wanted to create a dimensional background that shows the depth of the ocean. At the same time, I also wanted to create a shaker card. So I decided to combine them. However, the card got too thick after turning into shaker card, I felt it would be weird to make each layer thicker.
 
For the background, I first die cuts 3 cardstocks with different oval sizes. I stacked all four cardstocks (including the bottom most layer) together, and ink blended them with distress inks so that the color transition in all cardstocks are consistent. I spritzed some water at the end and wiped them out to create water effect.

Texture Copics Coloring

This weekend I was up for trying out some Copics color techniques. I was inspired by Marker Geek's tutorial on how to draw texture animals and was motivated to give it a shot. So here iswhat I've got. As for the background, I tried to generate ombre effect with pigment ink. Although it is a very common technique, I have never used it in my cards before!

Bringing Sunshine

My idea in this card is to present the motion of traveling from darkness to brightness. The background of the card goes from night to sunrise to daylight, and the air balloon travels from night to day. The girl was taken to the bright world by her friend, teddy bear.
