Hi, crafty friends. There’s a new release today from Rachelle Anne Miller. It’s all spring and Easter themed, and I’m here for it. I’m glad spring is officially here with the arrival of March, even though we still have snow on the ground, and probably have more snow coming.
I used the Egg hunt stamp for my card today. Egg hunting isn’t really a thing in Norway. Neither are Easter cards, but I sent a couple last year, and they were very much appreciated by their recipients, so maybe it should be. And when there are cute images, I just can’t resist.
I wanted a pastel look for my card, and this is probably the lightest wash of color I’ve ever done with my Copics. Except for E25 on the guinea pig, I’ve only used markers ending in numbers that are 3 or lower. That’s super light for someone who doesn’t shy away from using markers ending with 9. Once the coloring was complete, I used a black glaze pen to create shine in their eyes, and I went over it with a dot of white Gelly Roll 05 on the bunny.
From a piece of Winter Wisteria cardstock from Papertrey Ink, I die cut a circle opening and also used a faux stitch rectangle die from My Favorite Things to create a little bit of extra interest around the edge of the panel, before mounting it on foam tape.
I used a die from Papirdesign to make my God påske (Happy Easter in Norwegian) sentiment, and made it dimensional by stacking four white die cuts on top of each other, before finishing off the card with a few crystals from Papirdesign that match the Winter Wisteria cardstock nicely.
Here it is, the softest color palette ever.
