Happy Easter






I love the Dustin Pike images but often don't have time to colour them. I just got new SU markers though and wanted to put them through their paces. I would love to get some Copics but this is such a big improvement over the Crayola, I was using that I'm thrilled. Normally I use Prismas but I love the vibrancy of markers.

The DP is from a large package from Coscto that DH gave to me for Christmas. Squares and image are distressed at the edges with close to cocoa to make them stand out since I used pastels in the paper and images and wanted them to stand out a bit. It's also hard to see but the sky and the grass on the image are also sponged in bashful blue and certainly celery.

I really debated putting on flower embellishments but decided that by leaving them off, I could keep the card CAS and more child appropriate. I can now give it to DS from a certain bunny on Sunday.

  8. You've been busy! The colouring looks fabulous, you did a great job with the markers--like the blue outlining and the faint colour in the sky and on the ground.
