Dash of Inspiration – Easter Egg Hunt

February 13, 2012

A Dash of Inspiration, A Cup of Creativity by Doreen

Easter Egg Hunt

It’s not too late to add a few Easter cards to your stores! Even though we are cutting it close, if you don’t get sales from your new Easter cards this year you’ll certainly be ready for next year 🙂  Keeping it simple this week with a focus on images to inspire Easter creations and some tools to get you started!

I always find it very inspirational to see how artists in different mediums convey their unique messages, in this case their Easter visions, so here is a link to Easter Art on Redbubble.

So, for those of you who have never attempted to create an Easter Egg in your design program, here are some tutorials to get you started.

Here’s a few goodies to add to your digital toolbox and remember; ALWAYS do your own research on CU TOU.  I try to offer only those items which are okay to use for our Greeting Card designs, BUT I don’t always have the time to dig deep enough.  So grab the items and read the terms!  Actual license TOU is often in the download file.

Okay so here ya go . . .

    Egg-cellent Doreen (sorry couldn’t resist)!

    Good to note that painted/colored eggs are popular symbols for Persian New Year as well. Yesterday we put a call out on the forum for new Persian New Year card designs.
