Embossed Easter Card

Happy Saturday!!
I hope each of you are enjoying your Easter Holiday weekend!
I created this embossed Easter card with using a free image from Crafty Secrets
 that was shared on the blog.
After I embossed the background of my card I added CI paint Chocolate.
I randomly added this color with a dry brush technique
 because I wanted it to look rustic!
Lots of fun shimmer which you can't see that well with the picture!
For the metal embossed wire border I added Antique Copper CI paint.
To add texture to the baby chick I used some quick brush strokes and feathered them out and randomly used Sunshine CI paint color. I love how bold this color is!
Below on the close up you can see the texture on the chick.
I wanted to add texture to the plant so I used Glass bead gel and went over the white on the plant and added CI paint color in Winter Frost.
For the stems I used Mocha Latte.
I used Winter Frost on the outside of the egg and added some more Glass bead gel to the inside of the egg and use Fairy Dust CI paint.
For the chick eyes I used Coal CI paint and Evergreen CI paint on the darker parts of the grass.
I finished the card off with the lace and adding the Jeweled Inspirations in clear by CI paints.

Love all the amazing shimmer!
