A Dozen Tiny Easter Eggs!

I had fun making this one, slapping on the gesso and getting messy!
 I used a 7x7 kraft blank and added a border of Cosmic Shimmer white PVA dots, which I lightly sprinkled with a very pretty, variegated peach / pink / cinnamon glitter, while still wet.
The next layer is a piece of Prima, Fairy Rhymes paper, the edges of which have been distressed.
Next comes a sheet of kraft card, that I embossed with an Xcut folder that has a border design.  After embossing, I painted on some gesso, and, once dry, sanded back the embossed areas to reveal the pattern.  I then masked off the border and stamped an Easter greeting as a background design to the central panel using Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  I also used some Brushed Corduroy Distress Stickles round the edge of the centre square, where it meets the border.
The eggs were cut with an Xcut die from Prima, Fairy Belle papers, then, once stuck in place, were given a covering of Glossy Accents.
The bird was stamped with an Artemio stamp and coloured with Distress Markers, the feather was made with a Spellbinders die and highlighted with more Distress Stickles, and I finished off with a stamped sentiment.
