Happy Easter

Today I spent a bit of time making my first Easter card of the year.


This darling image is from the EGG-stra Special stamp set I purchased a couple of years ago from There She Goes Stamps. Sadly, they are no longer in business. I colored this sweet little girl with Copics, but did not take the time to do real Copic coloring and blending. Maybe next time I ink her up I will. My Copic "skills" are very early beginner at best. I need lots of practice which requires time. Hence, only simple coloring on today's card.

I used my Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles (yes, again!) to die cut the image and to create a frame around the image. The sentiment is from the same stamp set. I used a  Signo White Uni-Ball Pen to add dots to the eggs in her basket. The banners were cut from Lawn Fawn's Let's Polka 6 x 6 paper pad.

I will be entering this into these challenges:

  1. I think she is adorable and that you did a fantastic job with your colouring. I don't use Copics at all but can imagine there is a lot of practicing to do and things to learn with the blending etc. Look forward to seeing how you progress with future cards!
