It's Day Two of Sneak Peeks for TE and I've got a darling little Moka sweetie to share with you! Moka April is delivering a basket of easter eggy goodness to you and she is such a cutie. I really wanted to make a shaped card and I created this one using some oval nesting dies (Bean Tip: by off-setting the inner oval, you can imitate the feel of an egg without the actual "egg" shape.)


I colored adorable April with Copics. If you have a colorless blender, you can "remove" color as I did to give her dress some polka dots and the stripes and circles on the eggs. Also, if you are a Moka fan (as I am) be sure to check out the new FREE DOWNLOAD Moka Hair coloring charts designed by my teammate Jen Shults! The Petite set includes several sentiments and I chose a simple and perfect one, placing it in one of TE's previously-released Banner images.
