With Easter approaching our challenge to you this fortnight it to make an Easter creation.
We are sponsored by The Stamping Bazaar
For my easter card I used papers from DCWV from their Nana’s Nursery Stack. My image is from Mo Manning and has been coloured with promarkers. Because the background papers were an ivory/lemon shade I went around my image with lemon chalk to take away from the stark whiteness so it would blend better with the background, and I edged it with green.
The fence is three Marianne diecuts lined up together, and the little added chicks (which sadly look a little flat colourwise on here, although in real life they were more shaded) are also Marianne diecuts, which I cut out of ‘fuzzy’ paper and coloured with promarkers. The fuzzy paper does exactly what it says on the tin in that it’s fuzzy and feels like fur, or in this case soft chick feathers! Shame we don’t have touch-e-vision on our blogs!

Because I don’t celebrate Easter and therefore have no use for another Easter themed card I used the main part of the card to create a birthday card for a forum friend with some adaptions.
I printed a new image from The Paper Shelter called Spring Swing, which I coloured with my promarkers. The Fence was the same idea but I wound roses around it to look like they were growing up it, I die cut the same birds in fuzzy paper but this time coloured them blue to match the bluebird in the image, and added a mesh bow, and a birthday sentiment. I also added chalk around the image to tone down the bright white of the card.
