Watercolor Easter Eggs with Gina Marie Design Egg Die Cuts

This Easter card uses 3 dies from the Gina Marie Designs egg set you can find here for just $8. I decided to watercolor some papers using different colors and then die cut the eggs and replaced the patterns with different colors of papers. The background paper was splattered with purple watercolor splotches and mounted onto a purple glitter cardstock A2 card base. I used glue tape on the egg die cuts and ran my glue gun over the open spaces so that when I adhered the eggs to the watercolor paper, there was adhesive exposed in all the openings so I could easily insert the different colors of paper into the open spaces, press them onto the exposed adhesive and have them easily stick to the paper.
