Inspiration Emporium Easter Hunt!


I have a fun post to share today! The Inspiration Emporium is having an Easter Hunt and this is the third and final day of clues. Each stop on the hunt has a letter to be found, and my letter is “L”.


There is a fabulous prize – 3 seats in an online card class!


For my tag the very glittery “L” is front and center. I started with a grungeboard diecut and covered it with Peeled Paint Distress Paint. Once dry I added a thick coating of Glossy Accents and then covered the entire letter with Peeled Paint Distress Glitter.

For the next layer I die cut a pieced of Dried Marigold Core’dinations cardstock and sponged the edges with Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink. I matted with black cardstock and finished by adding the “L” and Chit Chat Stickers.

For the colorful background on the tag I painted a piece of water color paper with Ripe Persimmon, Festive Berries, and Peeled Paint Reinkers. I did dilute the colors with a bit of water before painting them onto the tag. This layer was also matted with black cardstock. I also added some stitching using white thread and my sewing machine.


I thought a touch or two of a contrasting color would be nice, so I added a few aqua enamel dots and a painted a Game Piece with Peacock Feathers Distress Paint. Behind the watercolor panel is a piece of zigzag washi tape. I finished by topping the tag with some Lime seam binding and a mini clip.


You can find the next clue on Joy’s Twitter account: @joykennedy4. Have fun hunting! And if you want to start the hop from the beginning or find out more information, head over to the Inspiration Emporium Blog.
