Illustration Friday: dip

Well I'll be dipped! I cannot remember if I have posted this Easter card in the past? Probably not because it doesn't have a house ;) My submission for Illustration Friday's "dip" theme is a die cut Easter card that is vintage style. When you bend and fold the dip in the egg it creates a little easel to help it stand on it's own . I have always enjoyed dipping and dying Easter eggs. Happy Easter and or Happy Passover.

Glad I hopped on over...and I like the purple Easter type! So dood, did you know in the Urban Dictionary, it states that one of the meanings for the word dip is, "to run fast away from something". And these cute little ones are doing JUST THAT!

Eggcelent! :oK <-- bunny...

You RockCandy!

A charming card!
I think I had a dream about your art last night. Either I was inside a piece or you were drawing it right in front of me. Anyway, I woke up in a delightful mood. :)

Happy Easter to you.

This is a charming card. A delightful Easter ritual to dip and paint eggs. Nice illustration. But yes I did look for a house in there somewhere.
